It’s Official: Second Neighborhood Council Workshop Set for October 24

Following the rousing success of the first Neighborhood Council Workshop, Councilmember Paul Krekorian is poised to host the second such town hall on Sunday, Oct. 24 on the campus of USC.

The workshop lasts from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will allow neighborhood council members from around Los Angeles who may not have had the opportunity to attend the first workshop to speak in detail about the future of local empowerment, including the chance to help shape that movement through a series of break-out sessions.

The second Neighborhood Council Workshop follows September’s session, in which more than 100 residents hashed out the future of local democracy. At that event, participants helped shape the future of neighborhood councils during four group sessions in which issues such as funding, ethics and the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE) were discussed. See videos and a recap here.

The workshop will take place in the Founder’s Room of USC’s Galen Center, 3400 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles on Sunday, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Click here to see more details or to print a copy for your neighborhood.

We look forward to seeing you there.
