Interested in learning more about local government and how to get involved in politics at the local level? In partnership with Pepperdine University’s School of Public Policy, C.A.R.’s Center for California Real Estate (CCRE) presents a new educational opportunity for C.A.R. members. Under the direction of Public Policy Dean, Pete Peterson, this series will be offered virtually and is free for C.A.R. members.

The six-week workshop will be divided into two parts. The first three sessions explore how local governments operate, how they’re funded, and how policy decisions get made. The following three sessions will focus on how to run for local office, including how to decide which office to run for, what to consider prior to deciding whether to run, how to run a campaign, raise funds and build political networks.

The six-week program takes place on Thursdays from 2 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. and runs June 2 – July 7.
