Ladies, Start Your Engines!

For women who have considered running for office but are not sure of the process, the Pennsylvania Women's Campaign School might be for you. From the inbox:

Women can gain “The Winning Edge” for elections and learn how to build a successful campaign at the Pennsylvania Women’s Campaign School on January 25-27, 2008 at Chatham University in Pittsburgh . Sponsored by the Pennsylvania Center for Women, Politics, and Public Policy at Chatham University and the Pennsylvania Women’s Campaign Fund (PWCF), the two-and-a-half day intensive workshop led by facilitator Diane Cromer will cover topics including but not limited to creating an effective campaign message, handling communication crises, managing criticism, and fundraising. Participants will work in teams to simulate a real-life political campaign and will have the opportunity to network with local women elected officials.

Note that Chatham is near Pittsburgh so it may be a drive for local folks. More information and registration forms are available at and Registration closes on January 9, 2008.
