On February 23rd some of the newest members of the NAACP executive committee had the opportunity to attend a leadership training that was coordinated by the North San Diego branch and facilitated by a state and regional NAACP leader. During this training we were given information regarding best practices in financial management, social media use and public relations as well as the roles of various officers and committees. The San Diego Branch attendees learned a great deal and very much enjoyed the opportunity to build camaraderie amongst ourselves and with the members of our sister branch. We are very excited to bring back the information that we learned and use it as a catalyst for advancing our branch’s initiatives towards the advancement of colored people in the central San Diego region.
