Budget Delegate Orientation
The next phase of Participatory Budgeting is proposal development, which is led by Budget Delegates. It is vital that all budget delegate volunteers attend this orientation, which’ll serve as a training on how to develop ideas, work with city agencies, and get proposals to the PB ballot. This is also an opportunity to meet other delegates.
