BC Federation of Labour Womens Campaign School

Are you a woman planning to participate in the upcoming provincial election campaign?  If so, then the BCFLs Womens Campaign School may be for you.

Dates:  March 21-24, 2009
Location:  Harrison Hot Springs, BC

This School will bring together the labour movement and progressive women candidates to offer women of all experience levels the opportunity to learn about ways to participate in election campaigns, from a basic campaign overview, to advanced campaign training and candidate school. The School will provide a combination of education, campaign team experiences and hands-on exercises to give participants information on how a campaign is run, the possibilities for involvement, and some of the key leadership positions that are needed.

This School is designed for activists who are ready to commit to participating in the May 2009 provincial election, but the skills learned will apply to any political campaign.

Participants will be assigned to a workshop group based on their election campaign experience as indicated in Part 2 of the registration form (attached).  Please ensure this form is completed as registrations will not be processed without this information.

HSA will provide financial support, including wage replacement, for a limited number of applicants to attend this School.  Preference will be given to members who:

1) have not attended a campaign school in the last 3 years; and
2) who have participated in political, labour, community or professional activities.

Information about the School and registration forms are available at: Carol Riviere at the HSA office for further information.

Applications should be sent to Pattie McCormack at the HSA office as soon as possible, and no later than Thursday, March 5, 2009.  

Deadline: Thursday, March 5, 2009
