Workshop on How to Run for Local Office

If you think you might run for office – or might work for someone who is – our annual FREE Workshop on How to Run for Local Office will provide you with everything you need to know about running for an Assembly or School Board seat. The 2020 Workshop is tentatively scheduled to be held in City Hall from 9am to 1:30pm on Saturday, June 6.

At the Workshop potential candidates, their campaign helpers, or others who are only thinking about running in the future, learn all about what the jobs entail, deciding and preparing to run, how to get elected, and what happens if/when you win. Each attendee is given a full printed ToolKit of information, including election requirements, the forms that have to be filed as well as many other resources for planning to make a run for the Assembly or School Board.

Below is the Toolkit from the 2019 Workshop along with helpful links to State of Alaska websites and information.
