McCarty addresses Coro Fellows
AIM president Ray McCarty addresses a group of Coro Fellows at AIM headquarters in Jefferson City on Monday, February 23, 2015
AIM president Ray McCarty had the opportunity earlier this week to address some of the nation’s best young leaders at AIM headquarters in Jefferson City.
McCarty met with a group of about 20 Coro Fellows from around the country enrolled in a unique leadership training program. Each year, 300-400 young people go through Coro training. According to the organization’s website, Coro trains ethical, diverse civic leaders nationwide. Coro leaders develop skills; master tools needed to engage and empower communities; gain experience in government, business, labor and not-for-profit community organizations; and participate in special community and political problem solving processes.
This particular group came from St. Louis under the tutelage of Keith Clark of Focus – St. Louis.
McCarty spoke to the group for about an hour about the association and lobbying at the State Capitol. Participants seemed most interested in the dynamic of relationship building and legislative success.
