From MDP: Training To Lead Local
We are very excited to announce our Maine Dems Lead Local Conference on June 10th, 2017! This conference will give local Democratic leaders the training, education, and network they need to be successful in 2017 and beyond.
Attendees will choose one of four tracks: elected municipal official – school board, elected municipal official – other (city/town government), municipal candidate, or Municipal/County Democratic Committee leader.
The Municipal Elected Official Tracks (school board & city/town government)
Elected municipal officials will learn how to effectively advocate for our Democratic values at the local level. While these candidates generally run without a party affiliation, those who choose this track will learn about progressive policy solutions to municipal-level issues.
The Municipal Candidate Track
Current and future candidates for local office will learn how to run effective grassroots campaigns and how to win. These are the Democratic leaders of the future. Building the bench now helps us run stronger candidates in 2017 and beyond!
The Municipal/County Committee Leadership Track
Municipal and County Democratic Committee leaders will learn key community organizing tactics, effective leadership skills, and receive training on how to employ each strategically.
If you’ve been thinking about getting involved, now is the time. Will you join us?
