CUNA N.M. CUs combine forces for campaign school
WASHINGTON (10/5/09)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) last week completed the latest in a series of educational endeavors, holding its New Mexico Campaign School 2009 in conjunction with the Credit Union Association of New Mexico. The campaign school, which is the second held in New Mexico, was attended by a number of state legislators. State campaign veteran Doug Turner, who is a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination for governor of New Mexico, served as a presenter during the campaign school.

CUNA’s Senior Vice President of Political Affairs Richard Gose and Political Director Trey Hawkins also covered a number of topics during the school, including campaign management, Get-Out-The-Vote targeting, communications and fundraising. Former Democratic Governors Association Deputy Political Director Daniel Sena also appeared as a guest speaker during the one-day event, which was held in Albuquerque. According to Hawkins, the ultimate goal of the campaign schools is to “train future elected officials on how to run professional campaigns and ultimately help elect more credit union members to office.” CUNA’s schools have garnered significant results, with campaign school graduate Betty Ireland moving on to become West Virginia Secretary of State. Other successful campaign school alumni include Sharon Frederick, who was elected to the State of Nevada Board of Education, and Bob Kressig, who was elected to the Iowa State House. CUNA has planned seven more campaign schools for the coming months, and also offers online courses for credit union representatives that are interested in political advocacy.
