Candidate College to be presented by USF Sarasota-Manatee and Sarasota Civic League

On Friday, January 27, 2012, the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee (USFSM) and the Sarasota Civic League will host the 2012 Candidate College from 8:30am – 3:30pm in the Selby Auditorium at USFSM.  Candidate College is a workshop that was developed in order to provide information to anyone who is interested in running for office.  It is taught by well-respected grassroots leaders, former elected officials and professional political consultants.

The workshop will offer information on topics such as framing a campaign message, tips on handling the media, planning and organizing a campaign, coping with incivility and more.  Because space in this workshop is limited, it is recommended that you register by January 13th by emailing or calling Kim Noyes at 941-925-2970.  More information about Candidate College can be found online at
