In this talk we will engage with the question: What does it mean to be a good representative? We will explore the different models of representation and apply these to real life situations. Next, we will explore ways to interact with your constituents and why that is so important in a representative democracy. Finally, we will conclude with a concrete discussion of ways that future leaders can use what we have learned to be better, more responsive representatives of the constituencies.
