Learn how to run for public office
North Carolina's electric cooperatives and the North Carolina Credit Union League will co-host three Campaign Academies for individuals interested in running for public office this fall.
The Campaign Academy was created by electric cooperatives to help prospective candidates for city, county, state or federal offices positions make the best decisions regarding their potential candidacy and their campaigns.
The school is open to candidates of any political party and will feature seasoned campaign veterans and professionals. Potential candidates will learn the basic set-up of a campaign and the financial and time commitments required. The school will focus on the following core areas: fundraising, campaign strategy, message development and communication skills. Attendees will also learn about campaign rules and regulations from State Board of Elections representatives.
Sessions will be held in Hickory on Jan. 31, in Fayetteville on Feb. 1 and in Rocky Mount on Feb 2. Registration is $30.
