TEA Political Academy
Saturday, November 6, 2021 • 9:30a.m. – 3:30p.m.


TEA Political Academy is a free one-day training to improve the effectiveness of your local association and pave the way election year. Offered by TEA leadership and the staff of Government Relations, the training is designed as a fun and informative day of organizing for political power. Members who participate will understand what is politically possible and have tools and resources to make their vision a reality. The training is strictly non-partisan, following the TEA idea that in politics “it’s not about R, it’s not about D, it’s about E.” Materials and lunch will be provided for all attendees who have registered.     


There are two tracks to the TEA Political Academy: Building Local Political Power: Growing the Influence of Local AssociationsSuccessful Candidates and Campaigns: How to Win at Every Local, and Effective Lobbying: How to Influence Decision-makers.


Coming a great distance from Nashville? TEA reserves hotel rooms for the Friday night prior to the academy. These rooms are below market rate for Nashville and are subsidized by the association. Availability for these rooms is limited.
