Date: February 9, 2013 from 9:30am to 12:00 noon
Location: Crossroads community centre. 1803 – 14th Ave. NE. Calgary, AB
Topic: Fundraising and Volunteers
In February, we’ll share ideas about setting a campaign budget (what the money will be used for), how to raise that money, what rules exist around campaign funding, and how volunteers can help when money isn’t available. We’ll bring some people with experience and some templates. This session will be ideal for candidates, those thinking of running, and campaign volunteers.
9:30am – Welcome, greetings
9:45am – Campaign tasks (Robert Hurdman)
10:00am – Finding people to help (Barry Davidson)

11:00am – How to raise $5,000 (Ken McNeill)

Save the date! We will meet again on March 16, 2013 at 9:30am. Be prepared to bring a draft of your print materials: sign ideas, brochure draft, website sketches, whatever you have. We’ll share ideas, give constructive feedback and have some experts who can apply some polish.
