2023 A. Michael Mullane Political Training Academy

Developed through FIREPAC, the A. Michael Mullane Political Training Academy educates and assists campaign veterans and political newcomers alike on how to run for elected office, manage a political campaign, or direct an affiliate’s political action program.

IAFF members or family members running for public office, managing a campaign, or implementing a political program for an IAFF local are encouraged to apply.

Because of the intensive, interactive nature of the Political Training Academy, class size is limited to 50 participants per year. Accordingly, the IAFF requests that each local recommend only one applicant annually.

The PTA will take place from Monday, May 1 to Friday, May 5, 2023. Applicants should expect to arrive on Sunday, April 30 and depart by 6 pm on Friday, May 5. The training will be held at the Maritime Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, MD.

Attendees are only responsible for the cost of their transportation to and from the Political Training Academy. The IAFF and FIREPAC pay for all housing, food, and training materials for attendees.

Once you complete the application, please send a recommendation letter from your Local President via email to Ian Stublarec at istublarec@iaff.org. Please include "PTA Application - Your Name" in the subject line. 

For more information, please email Deputy Political Director Tom McEachin at tmceachin@iaff.org.
