Pardon the infomercials; the music is terrible :
But I have a point:
This is your one chance to join our 16 impressive 2010 Fellows for an afternoon of progressive training, discussion, and networking. We are excited to partner with the Truman National Security Project to present National Security Bootcamp:
National security is no longer just a national issue. State and local leaders are now asked to address many issues in a “security” context, from immigration to energy security, the readiness of police and firemen to National Guard readiness; as well as critical infrastructures and homeland security funding. State and local leaders need to master these issues early in their careers to govern well—and to show their potential for national leadership.
Truman National Security Bootcamps are one-day trainings tailored to states and localities. They provide progressive leaders with the foundations of national security understanding, and training in talking about tough issues.
Register today and join us on April 17th to get a glimpse of how NLC operates and why you should be a part of the most exciting progressive organization in Louisiana! Space is limited, so register now to reserve your spot.
We will be starting at 1:30pm in the Howe/Russell Geoscience Complex, Room E131, on the LSU Campus in Baton Rouge (more info and directions: http://www.lsu.edu/campus/locations/HOWE.html). If you have any questions, please feel free to call Matt Bailey at 504.322.4702.
(And kudos to our fellows for putting on an amazingly successful fundraiser last night).
