Take a dive into the Texas legislative advocacy process, while learning the ins and outs of the Dallas Regional Chamber. Then ask what's your impact in local and state policy and learn how to use your story to advocate for your community.
Elizabeth Caudill currently serves as the Director of Higher Education and Workforce at the Dallas Regional Chamber. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Texas Christian University and served a year in AmeriCorps VISTA at Northwestern University before earning her Masters of Education in Higher Education Public Policy at Southern Methodist University. She is a current class member of the Dallas Mayor’s Star Council, was appointed by Dallas City Council member Rickey D. Callahan to serve on the Dallas Community Development Commission, and is an active member in Dallas Young Professionals Policy Committee. When she isn’t gushing about Higher Education, she enjoys running, singing as loud as she can at karaoke, and exploring DFW through local breweries.
