NoVA Candidate and Campaign Academy
The Leadership Institute's Campaign Academy is an intensive five month program that gives conservative candidates and those who support them the skills to fight and win in today's competitive public policy arena. This program is ideal for candidates, campaign operatives, elected officials, and conservative activists.
Our 2017 program in Fairfax runs for five months, and begins on Saturday, May 20, 2017. Each month, participants attend a full day seminar focused on a specific theme: Strategy, Communications, Candidate Development, Fundraising and Voter Contact.
Because this is a comprehensive program, participants enroll one time, pay one $150 tuition fee and are invited to all seminars, webinars and related programs. Participants who complete the program receivea Certificate of Completion and are invited to a networking event with alumni of the program.
The dates and topics for each session of the Fairfax Academy are:
Sat. May 20 – Session 1 Strategy
Sat. June 17 – Session 2 Communications
Sat. July 15 – Session 3 Candidate Development
Sat. August 19 – Session 4 Fundraising
Sat. September 16 – Session 5 Voter Contact
Each full-day session starts at 9:00AM and wraps up at 5:00PM. A continental breakfast, lunch, and light refreshments will be provided at each session.
