2017 Introductory Workshop (Washington, D.C.)
Introductory Workshop - September 9-10
This workshop is a political leadership training that equips veterans, transitioning service members, and other committed members of the military community to pursue a "second service" to their country in elected office, political campaigns, advocacy, or civic leadership.
Attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of the campaign process from a dynamic team of instructors ranging from inside-the-beltway experts to distinguished public servants to grassroots activists. Content will cover breaking ground on a campaign, fundraising, strategy, communications, grassroots politics, digital media, running as a veteran candidate, bulletproofing your service record, and building a vets and military families coalition. The cost for the weekend workshop is $495. Fundraising assistance via CrowdRise and limited financial aid is available to offset the cost of tuition and travel.
