High Road Governance: A Training for New Mayors

Helping Mayors Build the Skills to Transition from the Campaign Trail to City Hall

May 7, 2019

 

Wednesday, July 31 - August 1 in Columbia, SC

Transitioning from campaigning to leading a city is an enormous challenge. We know how hard it can be to tackle the everyday city emergencies while also advancing a bold policy platform. It takes more than good policy ideas to govern effectively - new mayors also need a new set of tools and skills to be successful.This is why we are excited to partner with re:Power to host High Road Governance: A Training for New Mayors. This 1.5 day training will help mayors effectively transition from running for office to leading their cities toward the high road of equity, sustainability, and democracy. re:Power has trained over 800 elected leaders, in addition to countless community leaders. The training takes place immediately before the Summer 2019 Meeting - all training attendees will receive a 50% discount to also attend the Summer Meeting.
