What you will learn

The Organization-Building Workshop equips activists and leaders to make a measurable difference locally while building a long-term volunteer and voter base for an organization. The skills and models that will be taught are distilled from best practices of campaigns, marketing, sales, and psychology; the activities are designed so participants make immediate progress towards their goals for volunteer, membership, donor, and prospect recruitment.
