Rise New Mexico’s intensive 7-month Campaign Academy will lead women through each step of creating an effective campaign. Monthly modules will guide candidates on developing a persuasive advocacy message, the principles of policy development and good government, and managing an issue-based or candidate campaign. Sessions will feature prominent business and policy leaders from New Mexico as well as nationally-renowned experts in communications, public relations, and policy development.
A full schedule for the 2019 Candidate Academy is below.
Applications will be accepted until January 1, 2019. Space for the intensive program is limited, and applications will be evaluated by a distinguished panel of New Mexico business leaders. The campaign school begins in February 2019.
“The future of New Mexico relies on the work of our women business owners and community builders, but their perspective is missing from the state’s policy discussions,” said Rep. Kelly Fajardo, Rise New Mexico founder and chair. “Rise New Mexico offers these trailblazing women an avenue to influence the decisions that will determine the future of our state. Our Candidate Academy will give them the skills and connections they need to create meaningful change in New Mexico.”
2019 RISE Training Class Applications Due 1/15/2019.
