Campaign School

Have you ever thought about running for office?
MTA Campaign School can help you succeed

Educators are needed to offer their talents, experience and leadership in important local elective offices, such as on school committees. Educators possess the qualities that voters look for, but many feel that they are not prepared or don’t have the skills necessary to run successfully for office.

MTA Campaign School will provide basic information and tools so that MTA members can make informed decisions about running. Campaign School will teach how to execute a successful campaign — from the first meeting around the kitchen table through getting out the vote on Election Day.

Take the First Step

Introductory sessions will provide you with the basic information and tools needed to make informed decisions about running for office. Sessions will run from 4:30-7 p.m. with a light meal provided.
