State Sen. Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita, will present two College of the Canyons Foundation Chancellor’s Circle workshops on Friday, Sept. 20, that will discuss how businesses leaders can influence and affect change with policy makers and local legislators.
“Success in a legislative or regulatory environment involves knowing what to do and who to talk to,” said Wilk, who is former member of the Santa Clarita Community College District Board of Trustees. “These workshops will help business owners understand how the process really works, what techniques can help them move the ball forward, and how best to communicate in this environment. They will walk away with first-hand knowledge of how best to navigate the system and ensure their voices are heard.”
The local business community is invited to attend the morning workshop from 7:30 a.m. – 10 a.m. or the afternoon workshop from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The workshops will include a Q&A session with Senator Wilk.
Breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m. and lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. for the morning and afternoon workshops, respectively. Both workshops will be held in Canyons Hall Room 201, located at the college’s Valencia campus.
“Senator Wilk has been a longtime supporter and believer in College of the Canyons,” said Chancellor Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook. “His in-depth knowledge and experience as a legislator in Sacramento is invaluable to those interested in business advocacy.”
Tickets for the “How Business Leaders Can Advocate Change” workshops are complimentary for Chancellor’s Circle members and $20 for non-members. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP by Friday, Sept. 13.
“We are thrilled to offer local business leaders the opportunity to hear from and interact with Senator Scott Wilk,” said Jill Mellady, chair of the COC Foundation Chancellor’s Circle Committee. “The Senator is one of the most thoughtful and important law makers in the state of California. If you are a business owner who wants to know more about the business climate in our state, and what you can do to influence public policy, you won’t want to miss this workshop.”
