The CSULB College Chapter of the NAACP will host its General Membership Meeting in conjunction with Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity , and Student Organization of Life and bring guest speaker City of Long Beach Deputy City Manager Reginald Harrison.
Reginald Harrison became Deputy City Manager for the City of Long Beach in February 2001, after serving as the City’s Interim Director of Community Development. He has over two decades of experience in municipal management, having worked for the cities of San Diego and Carlsbad before joining the City of Long Beach in 1996 as its Housing Authority Bureau Manager. He reorganized and automated the Housing Authority to increase opportunities for low-income families to become self-sufficient. Reggie’s broad background in housing development and “entrepreneurial spirit” facilitated his transition to become the City’s Economic Development Bureau Manager in 1999. His management style is a unique blend of training from 25 years as a military officer, retired Lieutenant Colonel, in the California Army National Guard, and 23 years as a municipal manager in large, medium and small cities. He has a Masters Degree in Business Administration and an undergraduate degree in Psychology and resides in Long Beach where he is an active participant in the community and a member of several boards and commissions.
This meeting is open to the public and will be held Wednesday, December 07, 2011 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at California State University, Long Beach Student Union Room 305.
