About the event

Please note: this opportunity is only open to potential or current candidates and campaign staff in Arizona, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, or Florida. 

There are thousands of offices up for election in 2024, and we’re not just talking about the ones in Washington, DC.

You don’t need to know every in and out of running for office– that’s why NDTC has already organized an expertly curated, multi-session workshop on campaign preparation. Intended for local and state candidates, as well as staff or volunteers, our first Candidate Bootcamp: Campaign Fundamentals brings together specialized training, practical case studies, and hands-on experiences designed to lay your campaign’s foundation if you’re running in Arizona, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, or Florida.

Led by seasoned political campaign experts, you’ll gain insights into the fundamental strategies in communications, fundraising, and field. These skill sessions include:

  • Three Steps to Establishing Your Campaign
  • Calculating Your Vote Goal
  • Fundraising in Action: How to Ask for Money
  • How to Connect with Voters Through Personal Stories

This is a collaborative effort, which means you will have the opportunity to meet and interact with fellow candidates! This practical experience allows you to apply your knowledge, hone your skills, and build confidence in your ability to win in 2024 and beyond.

Not in one of these states? Don’t worry – we have exciting programming for other 2024 candidates coming soon!

This is the first training in a three-part series of bootcamps intended to help candidates and staffers navigate the initial steps of establishing your campaign and  strong local infrastructure for future success..

What to Expect

We will be using Zoom for this training. We encourage downloading the app version (instead of viewing directly in your web browser) so that you can fully participate in any breakout groups.

Your Zoom link is visible once registered for this event on our website, and the Zoom link will be emailed as a reminder to you 30 minutes prior to the start of the training.  Zoom will ask you to verify that you’re an authorized user. This is a security measure we’ve added – all you need to do is sign in to a free Zoom account (this is different from your traindemocrats.org account).
