Let us celebrate the Epiphany of our Lord Jesus and His blessings on our new year with a Potluck Lunch!  Please bring a SMALL dish to share and join us at 11:30 a.m. on January 13th at the ELCA headquarters in the 5th Floor Screening Room.  Coffee, tea, and water will be available.
There will be a microwave available if you would like to bring a warm dish.
At the beginning all campaigns need momentum, and insiders can provide the spark to ignite a campaign and provide energy to see it through to conclusion. We will explore conducting an insider campaign in science and practice, drawing on the experiences of two campaign veterans who have used insiders to ignite a campaign. We will emphasize how to use your key constituents to test and refine the case for support; to create momentum - both in dollars raised and participation and to signal that the organization's key constituencies are on board, igniting them to endorse the campaign. 
After this session you will be:
  1. Prepared to determine if an insider phase is relevant to your organization and campaign plan
  2. Able to identify key constituents in your organization to include in an insiders campaign
  3. Able to outline potential tactics for conducting an insider campaign
  4. Prepared to develop a plan for conducting an insider campaign for your organization
