Long Beach Rising graduates nine new advocate commissioners


This summer, nine local community leaders graduated from the Long Beach Rising! Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute (BCLI) to join a growing group of advocate commissioners in the city. The training is aimed at increasing the representation of diverse community stakeholders on Long Beach's boards and commissions. Over three day-long sessions, graduates learned about the city structure and the role of boards and commissions, what considerations they should make when getting appointed and eventually serving on a board, and how they can engage boards and commissions in their advocacy.


Congratulations to our 2018 cohort: Cynthia Howell, Elizabeth Garcia de la Cadena, Hayley Searight, Jessica Schumer, Joana Arcangel, Kevin Joerger, Kevin Shin, Mary Simmons, and Steve Askin. The BCLI is coordinated through Long Beach Forward and the Long Beach Coalition for Good Jobs and a Healthy Community. For more information, contact christine@lbforward.org.

Este verano, nueve líderes comunitarios locales se graduaron del Long BeachRising! Instituto de Liderazgo de Juntas y Comisiones (BCLI) y se unirán a un grupo creciente de comisionados defensores en la ciudad. La capacitación tiene como objetivo aumentar la representación de los diversos interesados ​​de la comunidad en las juntas y comisiones de Long Beach. Durante tres sesiones de un día, los graduados aprendieron sobre la estructura de la ciudad y el papel de los consejos y comisiones, qué consideraciones deberían tomar al ser nombrados y, finalmente, formar parte de un consejo, y cómo pueden involucrar a los consejos y comisiones en su defensa.
