Saginaw Valley State University will host the Ready to Run Michigan conference Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18.
Ready to Run is a nonpartisan campaign program aimed toward training and encouraging women to run for political office at local, state, and national levels.
The conference will feature a panel with elected representatives from around the state, and training sessions on how to run for office. These sessions will give participants the skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to promote a successful campaign and race. The workshops will focus on topics such as media training, fundraising strategies, and building political leadership.
