ELI Utah to Host Candidate & Campaign Training Webinar on April 11

Ever thought about running for office? Thinking about working on a campaign? Join the Emerging Leaders Initiative of Utah (ELI Utah) for a non-partisan workshop that will train you to successfully run for office or work for/run a campaign.

WHAT: ELI Utah's Candidate and Campaign Training
WHEN: Saturday, April 11 10am to noon
WHERE: online

The event is free, but free-registration is required.

In addition to sharing best practices on campaign budgeting, grassroots outreach and more, this training will also help attendees understand the impact of COVID-19 on 2020 election campaigns at the state, local and federal levels.

We’ll discuss tools and ways to adapt campaigns now that door-to-door canvassing, in-person conventions and other traditional campaign features are no longer occurring. Learn why online volunteering training, virtual town halls and effective social media are more important than ever before.

While young Utahns between 18 and 39 make up nearly one-third of the state’s population, less than 4% of elected officials are under the age of 40. We believe that young leaders are crucial to building a government reflective of our state.
