CUNA and Montana’s Credit unions will join other cooperative associations in Montana starting Tuesday for CUNA Campaign School, a program designed to educate and inform prospective political candidates and campaign workers. This is the 20th year CUNA has conducted its campaign school. The one-day, non-partisan event features sessions on campaign organization, communication and fundraising, and will take place in three Montana cities this week.
These are a great way for credit unions to connect to state and local offices because those are the Congressmen Senators of the future, as well as those who hear our issues at the state levels,” said CUNA Chief Political Officer Richard Gose. “This is non-partisan and it’s proven to be quite successful over the last 20 years and we’re happy to be continuing.”
CUNA and Montana’s Credit Union staff are joined by Montana Electric Cooperatives’ Association, the Montana Council of Cooperatives, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association in conducting the sessions.
Attendees will also meet with campaign professionals and successful candidates familiar with Montana’s unique political landscape, including Montana Office of the Commissioner of Political Practices and state representatives and senators from both parties.
