CUNA campaign school kicks off in Albuquerque
WASHINGTON (8/15/11)--More than 20 potential candidates, including local credit union representatives, joined the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the Credit Union Association of New Mexico (CUANM) as they presented 2011’s first CUNA campaign school in Albuquerque, N.M., last week.

The 2011 campaign school was the third held in New Mexico. Topics covered in last week's session included campaign management, fundraising, message development, and get-out-the-vote planning. Potential candidates at the state's sessions planned to contend for a broad swath of positions in both local and state races, and represented candidates of both parties. Current mayor of Albuquerque Richard Berry (R) attended the first New Mexico campaign school before he defeated longtime incumbent Democratic Mayor Martin Chavez in 2009. The campaign school was led by CUNA Senior Vice President of Political Affairs Richard Gose and CUNA Vice President of Political Affairs Trey Hawkins, and also featured the advice of Washington, D.C.-based political communications consultant Michael Hook and Portland, Ore.-based political consultant Jon Isaacs. “We offer these campaign schools a service to first-time candidates, regardless of affiliation,” said Hawkins. “But our ultimate goal is to help more credit union professionals and volunteers run for and win elective office.” CUNA is scheduling a number of other campaign schools in anticipation of the upcoming 2012 elections.
