Has Anyone Ever Told You, You Should Run for Office?

Has Anyone Ever Told You, You Should Run for Office?

posted: 07/05/2018

If so, you must have shown some interest in or talent for local politics.  On October 25, we’d like to provide some help to determine whether running for office is right for you.  Central Mississippi REALTORS® and Mississippi REALTORS® intend to co-sponsor a one-day Candidate Training Academy for REALTORS® and friends of REALTORS® who have a sincere interest in the subject of running for public office. 

NAR’s Candidate Training Academy was developed to give REALTORS®, REALTOR®-friendly candidates, or those who are considering running for political office, an introduction to and a realistic expectation of how to run.  The course is intended to give a head start to those considering a political journey as well as information on how to run a successful campaign.  Topics include:

  • Why run for office?
  • Campaign planning and budgeting
  • Research and targeting
  • Fundraising
  • Voter contact
  • Winning online
  • Get out the vote
  • Volunteers
  • Grassroots

At this point, CMR is attempting to determine if there is enough interest among members and their friends to hold the course.  We must guarantee NAR a minimum of 25 attendees.  It will be open to REALTORS® across the state as well.  If you are interested in this day-long course on Oct 25, please reply to
