About the Event

2020-2021 has shown us how important our school board elections are! 

The Livingston County Republican Party will be hosting a candidate boot camp for individuals wanting to run for school board in 2022. Please note, this training will be held in-person and will be available to anyone wanting to run for school board throughout Michigan in 2022

(The specific location for the boot camp will be provided to the registrants closer to late July, but the training will take place in Howell, MI.)

This boot camp has been developed to give conservatives the skills they need to turbocharge their campaigns. Top political strategists and trainers will teach attendees critical elements of campaigning, including: 

  • What a school board member does and why they are important
  • Campaign overview and structure
  • Developing a campaign plan
  • Key issues and how to develop an effective message
  • Social media
  • Developing a campaign budget 
  • Fundraising
  • Media training and public speaking
  • Organizing the grassroots and field campaigns
  • And much, more!


Class times are:

  • Friday, August 5th from 4:00 pm until 10:00 pm
  • Saturday, August 6th from 8:00 am until  5:00 pm
  • Sunday, August 7th from 8:00 am until  3:00 pm

Your $49 registration fee will cover all class materials, snacks, and all meals (dinner on Friday, breakfast/lunch/dinner on Saturday, and breakfast/lunch on Sunday) throughout the weekend. 

Registration will close on Wednesday, August 4th at 8:00 pm.
