Monies raised from this networking reception will benefit the LLWC Foundation's education and training initiatives for women and girls in Louisiana.
On Wednesday, March 25, 2015, two campaign training program tracks specifically tailored to the registrant's level of readiness will be held.
Track 1 will target those women who are immediately planning to run for office.
Track 2 will target those women who may have an interest in running for office in the future.
Sessions will provide advice and best practices from experts and current and former elected officials, provide a better understanding of party politics, teach on fundraising and media skills, give instructions on how to run for public office, inspire participants to launch a campaign and “get in the race” and share information on internet strategies for political campaigns.
