Library Campaign Training Institute

This four-part workshop series (or one-

day intensive) walks library staff and boards through the ins and outs of running successful budget/funding votes, building referendums or charter changes.  Part 1 starts with an overview and details on campaign planning.  Part 2 is all about developing a compelling message using the powerful combination of emotional branding and Communication Service’s community values-based model.  Part 3 details voter contact—from phone banking to direct mail to door-to-door activities—and how to manage all the data you’ll compile.  Part 4 is the all important Get Out The Vote (GOTV is its name for short) and what you’ll do with all the info you’ve collected.  You might be winning in the streets but you can still lose at the polls.  GOTV is all about turning out your base—it’s someone else’s job to turn out the no voters.

Day 3: Building Your Library’s Base

 How do you build support before you get to the point of going to the voter’s?  Who should you reach out to? How to build relationships?  How does your library’s programs and services help you build a base of support?  This workshop will answer those questions and help you develop a straight forward strategy that positions your library for on-going success.     


NOTE: $10 per day fee applies.  You can attend all 3 days for $30, the 2 day Institute for $20 or only day 3 for $10.  Registration fees must be returned with the Spring CE 2016 registration form (available for down load in box to the right)
