The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Business will participate as an academic partner with the California Latino Legislative Caucus Institute for Public Policy (CLCI) at the 7th DaimlerChrysler/CLCI Elected Officials Academy in which ten leaders from Arizona will experience an intensive three-day training entitled: “Advancing the Practices of Effectiveness, Transparency and Ethics in Local Government.” The Academy is scheduled to take place in Orange County from August 2-4, at the Doubletree Hotel in Santa Ana.
Arizona leaders are participating in the Academy under the auspices of the recently established Arizona Latino Legislative Caucus Institute. Representatives from government, academia and the business world will head an impressive list of program speakers that will include Senator Richard Polanco, Senate Majority Leader of the Twenty-Second District; Drucker School Dean Ira Jackson, who will address the opening session; Dr. David Hayes-Bautista, Professor of Medicine at UCLA; and JoAnne Speers, Executive Director of the Institute for Local Government.
The Academy program will cover ethics, parliamentary rules, public finance, constituent service and the protocol of conducting meetings. Participants will have the opportunity to network, share mutual issues and concerns and will learn about various solutions being implemented in other communities and municipalities.
The California Latino Caucus Institute (CLCI) is a public policy educational and leadership development organization with a mission—“to promote enlightened ethical leadership and positive social transformation in government”—a mission consistent and in line with the Drucker school focus and philosophy as a values-driven institution committed to creating competent, ethical leaders who make a difference in all sectors of society.
