Just in case you hadn’t noticed, the campaign season is on us again and the professional politicians aren’t the only ones with an important message. Margrove College’s Department of Social Work and Wayne State University have teamed up to offer a one-day workshop on how to organize a political campaign. On Saturday, March 24, 2012 on the Marygrove campus, or at WSU’s Oakland Center via satellite, social workers, students, social justice advocates, community activists, or anyone who wants to learn about the complex process of organizing and running a political campaign, can learn from experts and network with others with important causes.
This workshop, entitled Political Leadership Campaign Training: Motivating tomorrow’s Leaders, will last from 9:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m. and has been approved by the Michigan Social Work continuing Education Collaborative for 6 CE hours. The cost of this exciting workshop is $20 ($40 if you want the CE hours). There will be discussions about organizing fundamentals, campaign team and coalition building, fund-raising, even information on resources.
