      Women in Government Panel Discussion

      On Saturday, May 4 from 2:00-4:00 p.m., the League of Women Voters of Asheville-Buncombe County and the Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont will team up to present WOMEN IN GOVERNMENT, an event designed to inspire young women to pursue careers in public service. The program will feature a panel discussion by five area women who currently hold leadership roles in government and public service. The event will be held in Ferguson Auditorium on the campus of AB-Tech.

      Panelists include Terry Van Duyn, NC State Senator; Susan Fisher, NC State Representative; Debra Campbell, Asheville City Manager; Susan Dotson-Smith, NC District Court Judge; and Jill Banks, Sergeant, Buncombe County Sheriff’s Department.

      Each panelist will share aspects of her personal career journey, including what led her to pursue a career in public service, the path she took to attain her present position, and the challenges and rewards of a career in public service.

      The Girl Scouts will have a prominent role in the program, introducing the panelists and asking questions submitted from the audience. An informal “meet and greet” will be held with the panelists immediately after the program.

      This event is free and open to the public. An RSVP is requested at
