Thinking about running for office in 2020? Don’t miss Montana Farm Bureau’s Campaign Management Seminar March 2-3 at the Delta Colonial Hotel in Helena.

Registration Deadline is February 14th.

This two-day comprehensive strategy session covers everything from selecting your campaign theme and platform, to setting up your campaign structure, managing money and winning.

A case study and a computer campaign simulation assist in the presentation of the seminar. These features allow participants the opportunity to have

meaningful, hands-on, experience and to test techniques, tools and methods.

The seminar teaches participants how to evaluate the candidate and the electorate, build a campaign structure, raise money, enlist allies, create coalitions, and get last-minute election day voter attention. The seminar is designed for candidates running for public office, their spouses, their campaign managers, individuals interested in running for public office in the future, and prospective campaign managers. We encourage candidates, their spouses, and their campaign managers to attend and work as a team.

"I attended the MFBF campaign school just after I announced my candidacy. Having never run for a state position before, I was in need of a well thought out strategy to base my campaign on. This school was very intense and give us plenty of ideas and practical experience to sort through and use in presenting ourselves as a worthy candidate during the campaign. I was able to win both my primary and general elections with over 70% of the vote. I credit the MFBF school with providing me the fundamentals to get this done. Thank you Farm Bureau."  Senator Bruce (Butch) Gillespie
