Cumberland Valley Rising will host a free, nonpartisan civics education event on local government and elections.
The event will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. May 14 at the Bosler Memorial Library.
Judy Chambers, an economic and community development educator with Penn State Extension, will speak about the duties of elected officials at the local level and will provide information on the offices up for election this year.
Chambers has worked in organizational and leadership development, strategic planning, local government training and land use education. She has more than 11 years of experience as municipal manager in Pennsylvania and has also worked on military base reuse for Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority in Chambersburg.
This event comes as a follow-up to previous series held by the group in 2017 and 2018 and is organized by the Civics Literacy Project, a CVR initiative that brings together experts and residents for educational forums.
No pre-registration is required and walk-ins are welcome for this free, public event.
