The 3rd annual McKeon Leadership Forum will be held on Thursday, November 30th at 6:30 p.m. at the Santa Clarita Valley Performing Arts Center.

The forum was founded by Chairman McKeon after he retired from Congress as a way to “promote learning, foster dialog and inspire involvement by bringing thought leaders from the world of politics, government, the military, and social action together with the community to examine today’s most pressing issues.”

Those in attendance are encouraged to not just take part in the information discussed, but rather go out and actively shape the community. Personal involvement within the community includes exercising the right to vote, volunteering, or even running for office. The message of the forum is clear: everyone has the ability to get involved within the community in one way or another.

The Chairman has partnered with the College of the Canyons as well as the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation to put on this annual speaker series.

Retired General Richard A. Cody will be the keynote speaker at the event. He served in the United States Army for over 35 years and was the 31st Vice Chief of Staff for four years.

Attendance is free, but guests will need to register online here.
