About the event

Democrats can’t win, if we don’t run. Finding and recruiting strong leaders to run for office is a crucial part of building long-term power and driving positive change in our communities. But candidate recruitment is not a simple task. It’s an art and a science and requires a plan.

Join NDTC founder and CEO Kelly Dietrich and special guest, A’shanti F. Gholar, President of Emerge, as they answer your questions and discuss how to find and recruit strong and representative candidates to run for office in your community.

A recommended (not required) course to take in our Online Academy is “Political Candidate Recruitment”
