Squamish Training May 30-31

Organize BC trainings introduce participants to community organizing and provide them with a foundation in narrative, strategy, and team and relationship building. As a participant, you can expect to walk away with a deeper understanding of what it means to be an organizer in your community.

The foundational skills and theory behind our organizing model, the engagement organizing model, was designed by Marshall Ganz, a veteran of the United Farm Workers movement, Harvard professor and training architect behind Barack Obama's winning 2008 and 2012 organizing strategies.  

You will learn:
  • How to tell your story to mobilize others to take action

  • How to recruit and retain volunteers and build strong teams

  • How to devise an effective strategy

  • How to select tactics that align with your strategic goals

The training is taking place in Squamish, BC, at the Brackendale Art Gallery. The training is on May 30 and 31, 2015 from 9:30am to 5:00pm each day.  We will provide lunch as well as coffee, tea and snacks on both days.

We'd like all training participants to coordinate with one of the event organizers, prior to attending.  Folks from My Sea to Sky can contact Ashley Hooper at ashleyhooper@shaw.ca.  Interested folks from other organizations or groups can contact Peter Gibbs at peter@organizebc.ca.
