Campaign Refresher Webinar Series

May 19, 2022 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm Eastern Time (EST)

The campaign trail is wide open this year!

If you’re getting ready to kick off your campaign, whether for re-election or as a first-time candidate, you’ll want to be sure your campaign skills are up to date. If you’re an Emerge Vermont alum, this webinar series will refresh your initial training and give you a few more tools for your toolbox.

Now that we’ve entered “post-pandemic” (sort of) times, what should change about the way you campaign? Maybe there were some aspects of campaigning during Covid that were actually really good that you might want to keep doing. Redistricting has changed the landscape for many candidates, and knowing how to deal with that will be essential to your success.

Announcing Emerge Vermont’s Campaign Refresher Webinar Series!

This is a short series of webinars for candidates planning to run for office this year. It’s a refresher for alums and a campaigning overview for first-timers. Campaign staff are also welcome, so if you have a campaign manager, field director, comms director, or other key team member who needs to gain these skills to help you win election, they can register too.

This webinar series is open to all Democratic self-identified women. While the webinars connect to each other, each of them stand alone. You do not need to attend the previous webinars in the series to understand the others.

Please join us in May for three great sessions to help you launch a great campaign!
