~ ABOUT THE SEMINAR ~
The Commonwealth Seminar is a privately funded program, founded nearly 20 years ago, with the mission of: "Opening the Doors of Government to Everyone".
It is an intensive training program focused on teaching diverse leaders how the legislative process really works.
Top legislators, legislative staff, media members, and policymakers introduce seminar participants to the legislative and budget processes, lobbying & advocacy, working with the press/media, and thinking critically about policy issues.
By giving an insiders' view of the process, our goal is to encourage diverse leaders to become effective advocates and to pursue careers in public service.
Three times a year, the Seminar hosts an intensive training program in & around the MA State House that invites community leaders to learn to navigate the legislative and state budget process.
