Last Call for HSA Election Campaign School

Space is still available in HSA's 2-day, non-partisan election campaign school for members who are interested in working  on election campaigns or running for political office.  The school will focus on opportunities for HSA members to be involved in the May 2017 provincial election, but will also touch on municipal and federal elections. 
If you want to help elect representatives who will support public health care and community social services, or are considering running for elected office, then HSA’s election campaign school is for you! Many campaigns are already underway, so this campaign school will prepare members to get involved right away.
Campaign School Dates:  Thursday, October 20 and Friday, October 21, 2016
Location:  HSA Office, New Westminster
This workshop is designed for HSA members with little or no experience in electoral politics, and will discuss the various roles that HSA members can play from now until Election Day.  Workshop topics will include:

  • The nomination process & nomination campaigns
  • Overview of an election campaign
  • Pre-election work
  • Campaign positions (who does what)
  • How to get involved
  • How HSA can support members to run or work in elections.

Nominations and election planning for the provincial election are in full swing, but there will still be many opportunities for HSA members to get involved.   Come to HSA’s election campaign school to find out how you can make a difference in your community.
