HSA offers Election Campaign School

HSA is holding a 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 2013 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 HSAs election campaign school is for you!

Campaign School Dates:  Thursday November 1 & Friday November 2, 2012

Location:  HSA Office, 300 - 5118 Joyce Street, Vancouver

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 during the pre-election and election periods.  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 well underway, but there will still be many opportunities for HSA members to get involved.   Come to HSAs election campaign school to find out how you can make a difference in your community.
