Grassroots Campaign School
May 11 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Please plan to attend the Grassroots Campaign School – Bellingham, WA, Saturday, May 11th, 12:30pm – 3:00pm, put on by the Washington State Republican Party. People who attended the one in Arlington said it was well worth the time. And this one is right after our Central Committee meeting, so you’ll already have on your go to meeting clothes. WSRP will feed us lunch, and they need to know how many will be attending, so please sign up as soon as possible.
We will host the event in 2 separate sections.
The first 90 minute period will cover activist and potential campaign staff training. This will include information regarding social media, canvassing, voter contact, data, and general volunteer involvement. This information will be very easy to understand and perfect for new and old PCOs, potential new activists, and really anyone who wants to become a part of the conservative cause in Washington.
The second 1 hour portion of the event will be more focused on potential candidate training, although anyone is welcome to stay and learn. This portion will include information regarding fundraising, campaign structure, and “what to expect” information.
There are a few groups we would specifically like to have present for the training:
- Local Elected Officials
- Youth Conservative Groups (CR clubs, YAF/YAL groups, etc)
- Potential Candidates
- Outside groups (business groups, realtors, cultural groups, church groups, etc)
We hope to have a combination of experienced PCOs who have done this many times, elected officials that can speak to the challenges of their first run, younger conservatives who will likely help staff campaigns or volunteer, and possibly recruit coalitions that will be incredibly helpful to candidates along the campaign trail.
