OKEECHOBEE - The Stuart/Martin Chamber of Commerce and Economic Council of Okeechobee, in partnership with Florida Institute for Political Leadership (FIPL), an initiative by the Florida Chamber of Commerce, is hosting a virtual Campaign School & Community Leadership Training May 4 - 6 from 9:30 a.m. to noon each day.
This no-cost and nonpartisan 3-day program is open to everyone and recommended for elected officials, current or future candidates, campaign workers, and anyone interested in serving in an appointed position. As we aim to secure Florida’s Future and move Florida’s economy from 17th largest in the word to 10th largest by 2030, it is necessary to ensure candidates running for office understand the issues facing Florida and our economic future. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, the campaign training school will be conducted online.
FIPL Campaign School & Leadership Trainings provide a comprehensive briefing on emerging local and state issues, teach attendees on what local opportunities are available for appointed or elected positions, guidance on how to prepare to run for office in the future and provide training on how to run winning campaigns during the 2021 election cycle and beyond.
Presenters include state and local political experts, elected officials, university professors, and community leaders.
