INDIANAPOLIS : Indian-born Gagandeep Kaur has been selected as a member of 28th class of the Richard G Luger Excellence in Public Servic Series. It is an excellent one year political leadership development programme started in 1990 to increase participation of inspiring women in pubic life. To date, over 469 women in 27 classes have been trained.
Gagan is always a great support for Sikhs Political Action Committee logistics behind the scene. Nancy Frank and Seema Verma who completed this programme were great inspiration for her to join.
Thanking for giving good wishes and inspiration to Gagandeep, Gurinder Singh Khalsa, president of SikhsPAC said " She is always a driving force for me... I am glad she is doing this."
In a communication received by Gagandeep read "Congratulations! On behalf of the Board of Governors, we are delighted to announce that you have been selected to be a member of the twenty-eighth class of the Richard G Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series.
The Honorary Governors who served as Judges indicated the competition was keen from the start and the task of selecting the final participants was "extremely difficult."
"Your credentials are outstanding and your application and interview were impressive. You should feel very honored to have been chosen from this highly qualified field of candidates
The Lugar Series annually selects through an application and interview process 20 to 25 outstanding self-nominated Hoosier women to participate in fast-track political training. Women who are accepted in this program have demonstrated long-term success and leadership ability in their careers or in community service.
Day-long classes, led by local, state and national Republican leaders, are held monthly for eight months, including a four-day seminar in Washington, D.C. These sessions are designed to encourage, prepare and inspire class members to position themselves for key elected and appointive offices. The Lugar Series is educational in nature and does not take positions on issues or support individual candidates. The program is run by a board of volunteer women and an executive director who are committed to the full participation of women in the Republican Party and in government.
