Our issue steering committees guide and drive our programmatic work in key issue areas. Bringing a diverse range of expertise and local experience from their work, elected officials from the network help shape an organizational approach.
Steering committees are an invaluable way for Local Progress members to shape and influence the work of the network. Not only is it an opportunity to help create the collective vision of what it means to govern as a progressive, it can also help you build your own skills and leadership.
As a part of a steering committee, you can sharpen your issue expertise through strategic, big picture visioning and deep collaboration with elected officials from across the country – helping to apply your own leadership and build your profile through the public work of the committee. You’ll also offer strategic guidance on strategic opportunities for the organization and offer ideas and suggestions for programming for the full network.
