Campaign Training for Potential Candidates and Volunteer Helpers
September 23rd – 6:00-9:00 PM
The Silicon Valley Association of Republican Women has partnered with the Independent Institute to provide an introductory campaign training event on Thursday, September 23rd from 6:00-9:00 PM in Campbell.
This class is the perfect first-step in learning how to set up a campaign to run for office. Both candidates considering running for school board (or other office) or those willing to help a candidate should consider attending this event. Topics for this training include:
- Voter contact, including voter and precinct targeting, scripting and messaging, body language, and a little how-to on tech
- Volunteer recruitment, including an effective approach that breaks people out of disempowering mindsets about asking other people for help.
- Introductory fundraising material, including rolodexing, anticipated time commitment, mindset and psychology, and building a finance team to support it.
Cost to attend: $25 which includes training materials and a snack.
Sign up today! Space is limited.
