If you are a business leader, lawyer, campaign staffer, community advocate, government worker, nonprofit director or activist and you are ready to run or manage a campaign, this program is for you. It doesn't matter if you plan to run for school board or U.S. Senate, manage a race for city council or Congress, we can help you get ready to win!
