Elisabeth Patterson: Don‘t miss Chamber‘s College of Political Knowledge

Is there a local issue that has you fired up? Are you ready to step up and run for office, be a campaign manager or campaign volunteer? Or maybe you‘d like to encourage someone with leadership potential to throw their hat in the ring.

For over 20 years, the Boulder Chamber‘s College of Political Knowledge has stood alone as the launching pad for local campaigns, providing those interested in running for office the opportunity to learn first-hand from successful candidates, election officials and campaign experts. Our illustrious alumni include elected officials, campaign managers and candidates from every level, local to state-wide.

Running for office may seem like a big step, and the College of Political Knowledge will give you the tools to help ensure your success. It is widely recognized as Boulder‘s premier political seminar and has been promoted by the major political parties.

At the Boulder Chamber, we believe that elections are the cornerstone of our democracy, and we advocate for broad civic participation as part of our mission. The College of Political Knowledge will be held Thursday, April 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. The event is free, open to the public and non-partisan. Registration is encouraged — I hope to see you there.
