Vancouver Core Training June 11-12

Based off of successful organizing practices from the Obama for America campaigns and the engagement organizing framework developed by Marshall Ganz, this interactive two-day training with Organize BC will give participants a grounding in organizing practices to successfully create distributed leadership teams to work on campaigns.  As a participant, you can expect to walk away with a deeper understanding of what it means to be an organizer in your community, and have practical next steps to implement.

We'd like all training participants to coordinate with an organizer prior to attending.  If you weren't invited by a point person from your campaign, please check-in with this training's recruitment coordinator: Peter Gibbs, at Organize BC, at [email protected]

The training is on June 11th and 12th, 2016 from 9:30am to 5:30pm.  We will provide coffee and tea.  Please bring a lunch for yourself.  If anyone is able to bring snacks for the training to share with everyone, we'd really appreciate it!
The training will be at the BCGEU Headquarters: 4911 Canada Way, in Burnaby. There is free parking on-site in the parking lot, as well as additional on-street parking. It is on the 144 bus route (which connects to Metrotown Station) and 123 bus route (which connects to Brentwood Town Centre Station).
