The Richard G. Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series is seeking applicants from across Indiana for its 2013-2014 Class.
Inspired by the leadership of former Senator Richard Lugar, for over 20 years the “The Lugar Series” has sought to provide a first-class leadership training experience that encourages, mentors, and prepares selected women leaders from across Indiana to seek new levels of personal achievement and public involvement. The program gives participants unique access to public officials and an effective and diverse statewide political network.
More than 400 women from around the state have completed the program, which was founded in 1990 and is entering its 24th year. Lugar Series applicants should have demonstrated leadership skills in their fields of work or community service. Class members are chosen by a competitive application and interview process.
“Our mission is to increase the number of Hoosier Republican women in key elected and appointed governmental and political positions, including advisory and regulatory commissions at the local, state and federal levels,” said Judy Singleton and Higher Education Commissioner Teresa Lubbers, the co-founders of the program.
Applications are due Thursday, Aug. 1, and are available by visiting www.lugarseries.com or by calling 1-317-536-6900.
The Richard G. Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series is a not-for-profit political organization funded and supported by the voluntary contributions of individuals and organizations committed to increasing the leadership of women in politics in government.
