Leadership group learns legislative process in Senate chamber

November 20, 2014

Mock session and swearing in lead day of training with legislators

 

Founder of The STAND Foundation, Tracy Steele, Sen. Linda Chesterfield, and Rep. Fred Love participated in The STAND Foundation’s third session of its Edward Coleman Leadership Institute (ECLI) at the Arkansas State Senate Chamber on Friday, October 3, 2014, for its Little Rock and Pine Bluff leadership classes. 

 

Steele, who has served in the Arkansas House and Senate led a “swearing in” of the ECLI participants followed by participants taking on roles of the Senate, including lieutenant governor and president pro tempore. Following the swearing in, Steele instructed the leadership group on parliamentary procedure and public policy development. Participants divided into committees—Public Health, Welfare & Labor; Agriculture, Forestry & Economic Development; and Judiciary—and debated hot topics such as the Affordable Healthcare Act and the “stand your ground” law to get an in-depth feel for the political process.    

 

The classes also participated in a mock Senate session, with assistance from the Arkansas Senate staff. Sen. Chesterfield discussed curriculum areas of public policy development and volunteerism, and Rep. Love shared his personal and professional experiences as a legislator with the classes.

 

The STAND Foundation Edward Coleman Leadership Institute is a leadership development program for adults 20 and older. In the training participants attend five, day-long training sessions focused on issues of personal, career, and community service, augmented by Internet-based training, motivational speakers, and the development of a community service project plan.
