Topics include: Why run, Campaign Planning/Budget, Getting on the Ballot, Fundraising, Getting Your Message Out and more. Why are we hosting this? Business leaders make great elected officials – so we want to encourage and help more of you run for office! Our presenter for this event will be Gideon Blustein.
