Florida Institute for Political Leadership to present free, nonpartisan program on politics

The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a virtual Campaign School & Community Leadership Training on Jan. 12-14, presented by Florida Institute for Political Leadership (FIPL), for those interested in learning about the field of politics.

The no-cost, nonpartisan three-day program will feature presentations from state and local political experts, elected officials, university professors and community leaders. The program is recommended for elected officials, current or future candidates, campaign workers and anyone interested in serving in an appointed position.

FIPL’s Campaign School & Leadership Trainings provide a comprehensive briefing on emerging local and state issues, teach attendees on what local opportunities are available for appointed or elected positions, offer guidance on how to prepare to run for office in the future and provide training on how to run winning campaigns during the 2021 election cycle and beyond.

The Florida Institute for Political Leadership, a newly formed initiative of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, was created to assist leaders who want to improve their local communities by serving in appointed positions or in elected offices. The institute is a nonpartisan program designed to recruit, train and guide people by providing leadership and training opportunities to get better candidates across the State of Florida.

Daily programs will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Jan. 12-14. Participants can choose to attend any or all sessions. For more information and to register, visit www.fipl.org/lee or call 850-688-8940.
