Are you an honorably discharged Veteran thinking about running for public office, anywhere from local School Board to the U.S. Senate?

Don't know where to start?  Here's your chance.

Network with other Vets aspiring to elected office.

This one-day, information-packed event is the only Veteran-focused candidate bootcamp in the US. 

Designed for honorably discharged military Vets, who will run, or are thinking about running for elected public office for the first time.  (No incumbents, please.)  

Offered by Special Operations Speaks Political Action Committee, the bootcamp will be taught by Sofield Associates, advisors to successful candidates.   

We'll conclude the day with a 6 pm sitdown dinner, featuring a prominent keynote speaker.

It all takes place at America's premier golf venue at the Pine Needles - Mid Pines Resort in Southern Pines, NC.

The Resort is offering a special room rate for up to two nights for $140 per night, single occupancy, taxes extra.  

As part of your room confirmation, you may also want to opt for a special Bootcamp greens fee rate for the day prior to, or the day after the Bootcamp. (Cancelling within 30 days incurs a full greens fee charge.)
