Sue Shear Institute to hold ‘Pipeline to Public Office’

The Sue Shear Institute for Women in Public Life at the University of Missouri-St. Louis will hold “Pipeline to Public Office,” a nonpartisan workshop designed for women interested in running for municipal offices as well as those interested in volunteering on campaigns. The workshop will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 26 and 28 in 222 J.C. Penney Conference Center at UMSL. The program fee is $50 if postmarked or received by Jan. 22 and $75 after that date.

Women who have held local office or managed successful campaigns will provide instruction on how to create a winning campaign plan, target voters, network, raise money, develop communication skills and identify your audience. Participants also will practice public speaking.

Previous “Pipeline to Public Office” participants have gone on to win seats as state representatives, mayors, councilwomen and school board members.
