What is the Upper Midwest Leadership #ReadySetLead Summit?

This summit is an intensive one-day conference that brings practical, effective trainings to you. Our trainers and policy experts have real world experience serving in elected office and running campaigns, organizations and being advocates in their community.  

When you leave the Summit, you will be ready to hit the ground running and be prepared to make a difference whether it is running for office or championing the cause you are passionate about. 

Should I attend? And who else will be there?

Yes!  This training is for you whether you are thinking of running for office now or maybe someday in the future or are someone passionate about issues impacting your community.  We are committed to helping you build a plan to be effective and learn how to lead within your community.  

The training will be attended by grassroots leaders, elected leaders, future candidates, issue advocates and people who are getting involved for the first time.   Everyone is welcome and that especially means you.
