Some of the topics include: how and when to make the decision to run; the importance of a disciplined campaign plan and message; the secrets of effective fundraising; what kinds of media advertising are right for your campaign; how to handle the inevitable crises that emerge for every campaign; the role of your spouse and your family; and how to become a better public speaker.

The registration fee is $250 for AMA members ($1,000 non-members), spouses and state medical society staff.
