“The purpose of the seminar is to provide political candidates with information they need to run for public office,” said Carmie Henry, vice president of governmental affairs for the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas.  “We consider this type of program a public service to the communities we serve. Experts will provide candidates with information from areas covering fundraising and campaign finance laws, message development and communicating the message, direct mail and get-out-the-vote techniques.”

“The Arkansas Broadcasters Association is pleased to again co-sponsor this event with the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas,” said Doug Krile, executive director for the ABA. “As broadcasters we are dedicated to serving our communities. This seminar is one of many public service activities that demonstrate that dedication.”
