Victoria Core Training May 7-8

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: Anna McClean, at Organize BC, at [email protected]

The training is on May 7th and 8th, 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!
