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. Class members are given the opportunity to meet Republican leaders and government officials from across the state and in Washington D.C.
The curriculum for the Series includes: 1) Kansas economic issues and key state industries; 2) Republican Party organization, both at the state and federal levels; 3) political campaign education; and 4) prepare class members to run for elected office, board appointments and other volunteer posts.
