2017 Emerge America Regional Candidate Bootcamps

2017 Emerge America Regional Candidate Bootcamps

 

Emerge America is excited to announce that it will host six Regional Candidate Boot Camps for Democratic women planning to run in 2017 or 2018!

The boot camps have been developed by Emerge America to give Democratic women the skills they need to turbocharge their campaigns. Top political strategists and trainers will teach attendees critical elements of campaigning, including:

  • Campaign overview & structure
  • Developing campaign plan & strategy
  • Messaging and Media Relations
  • Social Media
  • Endorsements & Power Brokers
  • Fundraising
  • Field Campaigns
  • Public Speaking
  • And much more!

Emerge America is expanding its proven model to more Democratic women running in the 2017 – 2018 election cycle. In the November 2016 election, 150 of the 214 Emerge alumnae on the ballot won their races—a 70 percent win-rate. And 25 out of the 30 Emerge women who have already run for office in 2017 won their races. That’s more than 83 percent!

Tuition varies by region, and includes the training, associated materials and food. Participants are responsible for their own lodging. Attendees who complete the boot camp will be considered Emerge America boot camp alumna and have access to alumnae resources, as well as continuing education opportunities for alumnae. Tuition may be paid by personal or campaign committee accounts. Due to campaign finance regulations, Emerge America and its affiliates cannot provide scholarships to boot camp participants.
