What is the Political Leadership Academy?

Since 1995 the CTV Political Leadership Academy has trained hundreds of Michigan candidates and grassroots activists. This dynamic and informative campaign school features some of the best and most knowledgeable state and national experts who know how to run – and win – a campaign.

A significant number of PLA attendees have gone on to hold public office including Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield, MI Senator Jim Stamas, former Lt. Governor Brian Calley, former Speaker of the House Jase Bolger, former MI Senator Phil Pavlov, and former MI Senator Rick Jones.


Registration is now open! Get your tickets by clicking the button above, and be sure to check back here and watch the CTV facebook page and instagram for updates.


We have trained hundreds of citizens activists, and you could be next. This training is only offered every other year, which makes it an event you do not want to miss!
