Candidate Exploration Workshop

Are you or someone you know thinking about running for elected office in 2018? If so, KFTC has a great opportunity for you. Our Candidate Exploration Workshop will bring together KFTC members and allies who want to connect their personal strengths, values, and drive with their desire to serve their community in elected office. This workshop is perfect for progressive Kentuckians who are considering their options and are ready to dedicate time to exploring what it will take to run for elected office.

This 5-hour workshop will be led by S&A Strategies, a Lexington-based consulting firm. The S&A team understands there are real personal barriers and challenges an individual will encounter when making the decision to run for office. This workshop will give potential candidates the opportunity to assess and reflect on those challenges. Participants will also learn ways to bring their beliefs, values, skills, and passions with them on the campaign trail, while learning how to better connect with potential constituents in their communities.

This workshop is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided. However, if you are currently filed to run for office an $80 fee is required. 

Space is limited so please apply today! The application deadline is Friday, November 17th. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by Wednesday, November 22nd. You can apply online here.
