2016-2017 Schedule

The Dwight D. Eisenhower Excellence in Public Service Series sponsors one class of outstanding Republican women from across Kansas each year. Our program is comprised of a series of events held once a month (typically on Saturdays) at various locations across Kansas, November through June.

Participants travel to key locations across our state to learn about Kansas history and politics at the grassroots level. Just a few of the benefits of the Series include the opportunity to:  meet Republican leaders and government officials from across the state and in Washington D.C; attend monthly seminars to learn from experts in communication, campaigns, ethics, public policy, fundraising and more; and prepare yourself to make a difference and maximize your potential for participation in the political process at the local, state and federal levels.
