Emerge Wisconsin moves 2012 training program to 2011

From Emerge Wisconsin comes news that the group has moved its training program for women Democratic candidates from 2012 to September 2011. According to Emerge Wisconsin, moving the training program to 2011 will allow graduates extra time to build a foundation for winning campaigns heading into the 2012 election cycle.

“We want to capture the enthusiasm of women motivated to run for office by the shameful policies of the Scott Walker administration. We want to make sure that those women not only have the training, but also the time to be successful when they run against the Republicans in their district.” Emerge Wisconsin Chair Sharon Corrigan said Monday.

Emerge Wisconsin’s program, which provides training to women candidates at all levels of government, will also continue to recruit and train women for the upcoming 2012 class that are planning to run for local office in 2013 and 2014.

The new schedule for the 2012 class is:
July 1 – July 29: Applications accepted for 2012 program
August 2011: Interviews/acceptance of 2012 class members
Sept. 2011 – March 2012: Emerge WI’s 2012 Program

  1. I am interested in participating in the up-coming Emerge training. Please provide me with information regarding application for the program. What is the schedule of sessions/classes? What is the cost? Where are sessions held? I have attempted to run for District 48 Assembly, but learned I have much to learn

  2. I completed my first weekend of classes in Emerge WI. I am truly amazed by the level of competence, diversity, and motivation by the women I am proud to call my peers. Mark my words, there are 20 names on the roster of Emerge WI 2012 and these are 20 names you will hear, attached to very important positions, in the future. I am so grateful that this was presented to me by a damn good friend who thought that I deserved to be among these women and his continued encouragement, education, and support.
