North Dakota Farm Bureau is sponsoring a Campaign Management Seminar on Dec. 2-3 at the Bismarck NDFB office.

The seminar will be conducted by Randy Dwyer, director of advocacy and grassroots development at the American Farm Bureau Federation, who is recognized throughout the country for his work as a political strategist.

NDFB sponsors the seminar annually as part of its continuing efforts to encourage concerned citizens to become actively involved in government at all levels. This seminar is a practical, hands-on workshop that focuses on the structure and organization required for a successful political campaign. Emphasis is placed on defining the respective roles of the candidate, the candidate’s spouse and the campaign manager.

“Our Farm Bureau campaign school has an outstanding record of teaching candidates for public office all the real nuts and bolts, practical things they need to know in order to successfully run a political campaign,” said Pete Hanebutt, NDFB public policy director.

He said the school is appropriate for all candidates, regardless of the office they are seeking, and has posted a high success rate over the last 25 years.


The registration deadline is Friday, Nov. 19. Class size is limited. The cost is $200 for a candidate who is not an NDFB member and $150 for a candidate who is an NDFB member.

For more information, visit or contact Hanebutt at 701-224-0330.
