What previous participants had to say:
“The Academy was able to train me in various capacities in order take on any role within a Campaign. I learned something different each time, and the speakers were invaluable. Without this Academy I would not have been able to manage and win my first campaign.”
- Rachael Gass, Houston (Campaign Camp and Campaign Academy participant)
“I found that the TDP did a great job of getting trainers who were extremely knowledgeable in their field, many of whom would be considered the most knowledgeable in our state on the topic.”
- Austin Stout, Spring (Campaign Camp and Campaign Academy participant)
“As a new County Chair, it was enlightening to review the campaign preparations and details, and meet the wide spectrum of candidates, campaign staffs, and precinct/county volunteers attending the camp.”
- Richard Maddern, Lampasas (Campaign Camp and Webinar participant)
