Progressive Governance Academy Application - PGA Maine Training
January 11-12, 2020 Portland, Maine
The Progressive Governance Academy (PGA), a newly-launched pilot project between the State Innovation Exchange (SiX), Local Progress, and re:power.
The Progressive Governance Academy (PGA) is a cross-organizational project of Local Progress, re:power and the State Innovation Exchange (SiX) aimed at building the key skills that elected officials at the state and local level need to govern effectively. This project is meant for public officials that share a commitment to racial, economic, gender and environmental justice and have demonstrated a commitment to these values in their personal and professional lives. This project is a 501(c)3 educational project. Curriculum is aimed at building elected officials' governing skills and in no way involves lobbying or briefing officials on any particular policy area or issue. We reserve the right to deny applicants if they have existing sexual harassment or unresolved legal issues. We also reserve the right to deny applicants that have not demonstrated a commitment to racial, gender, economic, and environmental justice in their time in the legislature. Applicants will be notified of their participation status in the weeks following the submission of this application.
While the PGA aims to provide educational training opportunities that are compliant with all state and federal laws, participants should ensure that their participation in this training is compliant with all laws, regulations, and legislative ethics rules specific to your state/jurisdiction.
