A new, non-partisan organization dedicated to getting more women involved in Arkansas politics recently announced its first campaign training seminar.

Women Lead Arkansas was founded earlier this year to encourage women to run for office regardless of political party and to help guide them into other leadership positions.

On Saturday, November 16 at Pulaski Technical College in North Little Rock, the group will hold an all-day campaign training seminar for women candidates only.

Regardless of which office a candidate is running for – city council, Justice of the Peace, State Legislature – this training will help a female candidate build a campaign organization.

The training will cover such topics as: developing a campaign message, working with the media, fundraising secrets and field organizing.

The seminar also has sections of training for women who don’t want to run for office, but would like to assume non-elected leadership roles.

The fee for the training is $50, which covers all materials and lunch.

Go to Women Lead Arkansas’s website to sign up for this campaign training seminar.
