SBAC member and founder of Jewish B2B Shalom Klein has been selected to attend the White House Community Leaders Briefing Series on Friday, July 22. Every Friday this summer from June 17 through August 26, the White House will open its doors to community leaders from around the country to take part in its Community Leaders Briefing Series.
The briefing series is a unique opportunity for grassroots leaders to go to Washington, D.C. to hear directly from White House officials on the issues that are affecting communities across the country and learn more about the Presidentâ€™s priorities and initiatives from the people that work on them every day. In return, the administration staff will get to hear what is going on in cities and towns across the country directly from the experts â€“ the grassroots leaders.
Participants are local leaders who are currently involved in their cities and towns at the grassroots level â€“ in their neighborhoods, schools, churches, non-profit organizations, environmental groups, activist and advocacy groups, etc. and who are continuously invested in improving their own communities.
Klein will be among 150 community leaders from around the country attending briefings on the energy and environment, small business administration, affordable care act and the Department of Education.
