Free Campaign 101 Training in Williamson County

Posted in Democratic Events at 5:23 pm by Kate

Annie’s List (www.annieslist.com) is conducting a free Campaign 101 Training in Williamson County on April 28th. The program is based on the EMILY’s List model and is designed for Democratic women interested in learning more about running for office or working on a campaign. It will also provide a great opportunity to network with like-minded progressive women in Williamson County. Below is a letter from the new Executive Director, Bree Buchanan.

Dear Williamson County friends,

I’ve gone from running for office myself last November to joining Annie’s List in their work to get more progressive, Democratic women elected to office. It may seem early, but Annie’s List has already started candidate recruitment and staff training for the ’08 election.

To ensure we have the best prepared candidates and campaigns, Annie’s List has scheduled a free Campaign Training for Saturday, April 28 (8:30 to 5) at the Holiday Inn Express in Pflugerville. You’re invited!

The training will be informative and inspiring. Those presenting include:

Robert E. Jones - our political director who came to us from EMILY’s Listand will be sharing some of their tried and true tactics

Liz Chadderdon - direct mail consultant who’s coming in from D.C. for the day (she’ll share great inside tips and make you laugh)

James Aldrete - established and successful consultant from
Austin who specializes in direct mail and television

Bree Buchanan - Annie’s List Executive Director and recent candidate for 3rd Court of Appeals

Please join us! You can register online at www.annieslist.com, or call 512-481-8100.

Hope to see you there - Bree Buchanan, J.D.

Annie’s List is a statewide political network that recruits, trains, and financially supports Democratic women candidates so that they are credible contenders.
