HSA supporting members to attend Women’s Campaign School

Are you a woman considering either running for elected office, or working in a key position in a future election campaign? If so, then the Canadian Women Voters Congress Women's Campaign School is for you.

Dates:  November 29 (evening) & November 30 (all day)
Location:  SFU Surrey, BC

The Canadian Women Voters Congress is a nonpartisan, grass roots organization, dedicated to encouraging Canadian women to become strong, effective voices at all levels of government. Women comprise 51% of the population, yet the number of women in elected positions across Canada remains less than 30%. The Congress is working to increase the number of women running for office as independents and with all political parties.

BC will hold municipal elections across the province in the fall of 2014. Candidates need to plan and implement their campaigns well in advance of the election – especially if they plan to seek a nomination to run with a civic party.

The Congress usually offers the Women's Campaign School only once a year, so now is the time to take advantage of everything the school offers to potential candidates, and to those planning to play a key role in election campaigns.

The Women's Campaign School explores the political skills, strategies and tactics required to win nomination and election campaigns. The complete program and on-line registration are available at

HSA will provide financial support for a limited number of applicants to attend the campaign school, in accordance with HSA's financial policies governing member education. An application for financial support is available here. Contact Carol Riviere if you have any questions, and send her your completed application by e-mail to, or by fax to 604.439.0976 or 1.800.663.6119.
