Campaigning to win

Benefit from the collective wisdom of the provincial and federal Green Parties who will walk you through the elements of a winning campaign, from voter engagement to "get out the vote" (GOTV). This course includes hands-on exercises, interactive presentations and "in-the-field" door canvassing. At the end of the day, you will have a concrete skill set for the most important elements of a campaign that can win.

The morning session will focus on:

  • Campaign goals: voter identification and GOTV
  • Volunteer management and building a core campaign team
  • Voter engagement

In the afternoon, we will:

  • Explore door canvassing and voter identification in detail
  • Join federal Green Party candidate Paul Manly (Nanaimo-Ladysmith) door canvassing

Lunch is included in your conference fees. Please note that all workshops require a minimum of 20 participants.

Price for individual workshop: $95. Please call 1-888-476-3686 to register for individual workshops and conference events.
