More than 50 registered to attend political candidates training seminar

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (ECA) —More than 50 attendees from across Arkansas are registered to attend a political candidate training seminar on Tuesday, Jan. 21 from 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas offices at 1 Cooperative Way in Little Rock. The event is sponsored by the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas and the Arkansas Broadcasters Association.

“The seminar is designed to assist political candidates in preparing for and operating a successful campaign for public office,” said Carmie Henry, vice president of governmental affairs for the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas. “Running for elected office and serving as an elected official is one of the greatest privileges and responsibilities of United States citizens.”

According to Henry, the electric cooperatives sponsor the seminar as a public service to the communities served by the state’s 17 locally owned electric cooperatives. The training involves experts with proven skills providing candidates with information from areas covering fundraising and campaign finance laws, message development and message communication, direct mail and “get-out-the-vote” techniques, he said.
