From Eddy Justice, 8th Congressional District Chairman:

8th Congressional District - Logo - 01

In last week’s edition of the Chairman to Chairman Newsletter, I alluded to big news coming out this week. Well here it is.

The 8th Congressional District Republican Committee will be hosting a CAMPAIGN UNIVERSITY in September. It is being sponsored by HRCC, MSCC, and MRP.

Guest presenters include:

  • Steve Tilley
  • Shane Schoeller
  • Robert Knodell
  • Jeff Rowe
  • Carl Bearden
  • Jaret Jensen
  • Josh Haynes

Attached is a flyer with all the specific details, and I hope each of you will distribute to your contacts.

This Campaign University will not just be for those interested in possibly running for office, but for those interested in furthering a cause or issue. It would also be a good event for anyone involved in politics at any level to attend in order to refresh their understanding of successful activism.

This University will have classes that include:

  • Fundraising
  • Vendor Relations
  • Grassroots Organization
  • Media Contact and Relations
  • Social Media

There will also be a forum at the end of the presentations for question and answer about campaigning, issues and experience. On this panel will be:

  • Auditor Tom Schweich
  • Congressman Jason Smith
  • Speaker Tim Jones
  • Former Speaker Catherine Hanaway

Lunch will be provided by the Missouri Times. Admission at the door will be $25. Early admission, prior to September 1, will be $15.

There will be more information forthcoming but I wanted to get this out to you as soon as we could. Please be considering whether you will be able to attend or whether your county committees will be sending a representative. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
