One of the things we’ve heard from volunteers is that you’d like additional training opportunities. We’ve heard you, and we’re now proud to be able to unveil an 8-week long program beginning this Wednesday, December 7 at 6PM, with a Webinar/Conference Call which will kick start our 8 week long OFA Night School Organizing Boot Camp!
We begin this Wednesday with a training on “Introduction to OFA”, continuing next week with a training on Messaging for 2012, and in subsequent weeks on everything from Digital Strategies (using Facebook and Twitter to organize), Volunteer Recruitment and Making the Hard Ask, Planning Events, Data 101 and Data 201, as well as How to Use your Personal Story.
The trainings begin this Wednesday, and occur for the next 8 Wednesdays with the exception of Wednesday, December 28 because of the holidays. If you happen to miss one particular session, we will cycle back through the training sessions after February 1, so you can make up any trainings you might miss.
Attached is a flyer which has the call-in information as well as a description of each training session. Feel free to distribute to other folks who might be interested.
NOTE – you will need to call into the audio AND video to be able to fully participate. To register for the audio portion, please sign up at http://bit.ly/siLtHQ and for the video using Adobe Connect you can register at http://bit.ly/tDHB1M.
If you have any questions or feedback about the trainings, please do not hesitate to let me know! Look forward to talking to you Wednesday!
