Local Coordinator Conference - January 20-21, 2012. South Carolina
Local Coordinator Conference - January 20-21, 2012
North Charleston Convention Center/Embassy Suites
Charleston, South Carolina
It’s been a long 3 years and 2012 is finally here! To ring in the New Year, Tea Party Patriots is proud to present our Local Coordinator Conference.
Specialized Training Sessions:
There are three main training sessions to choose from called “tracks.” Each track has 2 sessions and each track is offered twice. This means you can choose 2 of the 3 tracks offered.
Track 1: District and State Political Climate
Do you live in a red state but a blue district, or a blue state but purple district? Coordinators from many different political climates are sharing what has worked for their region, why it worked, how they built it, and what gave them the biggest bang for their buck.
Track 2: Public Speaking, Speechwriting and Media Interaction
How do audiences perceive your speeches? How can you get your message out in a hostile interview? The Leadership Institute will help you craft your public speaking skills, increase your confidence in media interaction and help you connect with your audience. Come prepared to give a short speech as well as help your fellow tea partiers hone their skills.
Track 3: Group Organization, Citizen Journalism and Grassroots Broadcasting
Believe it or not, these three areas have quite a bit in common. The first day of this track concentrates on promotion, publicity, communication and collaboration skills. The second day splits into three tailored sessions focusing on everything from fundraising to writing articles to program management.
General Sessions and Regional Breakouts:
Thursday night a viewing party for the GOP debate is open to all attendees. Throughout the conference, general sessions covering the 2012 Congressional elections, national program overview and regional/state breakout sessions are planned. You are the heart and soul of the movement; we hope you can join your fellow coordinators! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
