How Wilton Works: A Conversation with Wilton Board and Commission Members
Wednesday, March 15th, 7-8pm
The Little Theater, Wilton High School
Please join the Wilton League of Women Voters, along with our co-sponsor the Miller-Driscoll Parent Teacher Association (PTA), in a conversation with a panel of fellow Wiltonians who will share their personal stories of why they wanted to serve our town and how they went about doing it.
This program, which builds on the foundation of the How Wilton Works program of last spring, will give Wilton residents an opportunity to hear how fellow townspeople came to serve on different boards and commissions. This will be an informal, dynamic conversation that leaves room for Wilton residents – new to town and/or new to thinking about how to more deeply engage and serve in our community – to pose questions and learn about the many ways to participate in making our town work and thrive.
Panelists will include members of Wilton’s Board of Selectmen, Board of Education, Parks and Recreation Commission, Economic Development Commission, Historic District Commission, Master Plan Subcommittee, Amenities Subcommittee, and the Wilton Library Board of Directors. We will also provide some Frequently Asked Questions on different facets of the process of serving in different appointed and elected capacities, including links to last spring’s How Wilton Works program.
Stephanie Thomas, Connecticut’s new Secretary of the State, for whom grassroots efforts to expand civic engagement are a passion, will join the event to make final remarks.
The event will be held in person at the Little Theater and will also be viewable HERE.
Refreshments will be available following the program.
