Arizona Farm Bureau is hosting a two-day campaign management seminar on November 16 and 17 at the Arizona Farm Bureau office in Gilbert. The Campaign School is non-partisan and open to anyone who wants to be actively involved in public office at any level - local School Board, city council, County Commission & Council, State Legislature, or Congressional campaigns. This event is perfect for current and future candidates, their spouses, and campaign managers.

This practical, hands-on workshop will be taught by Cody Lyon, Managing Director of Advocacy and Political Affairs for the American Farm Bureau. Cody and his team have been recognized throughout the country for this program. Through videos, case studies, and an interactive simulation, participants will learn how to evaluate the candidate and the electorate, build a campaign structure & organization, raise and manage campaign finances, enlist allies, build coalitions, get last-minute election day voter attention, and more. The school has been creating successful candidates for decades and has a national 81% success rate.
