League of Women Voters Clark County and the Fort Vancouver Regional Library system are teaming up to offer workshop
You can still sign up for a League of Women Voters workshop in partnership with the Fort Vancouver Regional Library system to help you testify at public meetings.
League members Andrea Marzette and Cynthia Gardner will lead the workshop from 6:30-8 p.m. on Nov. 9 via Zoom. A spinoff from the LWV Speak Up School training for redistricting, this workshop is designed to help speakers organize their thoughts and improve the quality, content and delivery of their testimony.
In the first hour, attendees will be introduced to tools they can use to develop their testimony. The last half hour is optional for those who would like to practice their testimony and delivery with individual coaches.
Marzette and Gardner noted many opportunities exist to use these skills whether one is speaking before public commissions, councils, or boards; within volunteer organizations; or even in the workplace.
