Executive Roundtable 2024 - Election Year Blues? Act Locally: Run for Office

For this special and free edition of the Ellevate Executive Roundtable, we are joined by Sheri Weiner, community leader and audiologist who served as councilmember for Bellevue's District 22 (Nashville) from 2011 through 2019, as Vice Mayor in 2017, and is serving her district once again 2023 through 2027.

We'll cover Sheri's career journey, why politics, how to make a difference, and the importance of engagement, followed by Q&A and open discussion.

If you've ever thought about getting into politics, or are just now thinking you must (!) - this Roundtable is for you. Please join us for an open and motivating conversation rooted in the ethos of community engagement and positive change.
