The training will be geared towards individuals who are considering running for County Wide, County Board or municipal offices.

There is no attendance fee for individuals to attend the training. If they choose to travel to Springfield for the weekend, they will be responsible for their own hotel room. We will send out information on the discounted room rate at the Crowne Plaza – Springfield.
Space will be limited to 60 attendees! Once an individual has signed up, they will receive a questionnaire about what office they are considering running for, why are they considering running and their involvement with their local County Party.
