Have you felt inspired by the wave of women running for office and winning elections in the last year? Have you considered running for office yourself? Good, we want you to run and we’re here to help. We’re hosting a Get Ready to Run Locally Training for women interested in running for a local office on September 8, 2018 in the Triangle from 9AM-3PM.
Get Ready To Run is designed for women who are considering running for office in the next five years of their life. We’ll go over how to find your office and evaluate if you’re ready to run. We’ll also do exercises to build your network and get you to start thinking about fundraising. This is an essential training for women with a short-term plan to run for office.
Applicants should possess:
-the ability to build networks;
-the capability to communicate effectively;
-the willingness to learn how to fund-raise;
-leadership experience or meaningful involvement in the workplace or community
Applications are due by August 29, 2018. There will be a $20 registration fee to cover the cost of the training. Once you have been accepted, you will receive the link to register. Don’t worry if you can’t make this date — we will be scheduling other Get Ready to Runs around the state this year and in 2019.
