Happy Friday Democrats!

If we are going to win every race in every place, we must make early investments in training our most important asset - you!

The Washington State Democrats are excited to announce that we’re partnering with the ASDC Best Practices Institute to ensure we’re getting the most thorough and comprehensive training for ALL of our Local Party Leaders, PCOs, and amazing volunteers.The Train the Trainer (T3) program is designed to train thousands of people at their own pace over six weeks, beginning March 16. With lots of new PCOs and activists on board, we know this training will be beneficial for our grassroots leaders and contribute to our success for years to come! 

If you are a new LPO leader, a new PCO, or a new State Committee Member, please sign up - this will take the place of early 2021 Rise and Organizing Training, and instead of a few hours of new material, you’ll have access to 12 hours of the latest techniques and tactics - all done at your own pace over six weeks. It’s a great refresher course for “experienced” folks as well, especially if you have not participated in a formal training over the last two years.

T3 training classes will be held “live” every Tuesday and Thursday from 4 - 5 p.m. PT, from March 16, through April 22. The deadline toregister is Sunday, March 14 at 8:59 p.m. PT. This free twelve-part webinar course will cover:

Program Wrap-up

All training sessions will include a skills test to track retention and participation. Each session will be recorded and made available following each session via a weekly wrap-up email, so participants can still attend even if the live training times don’t work for their schedule!However, only registered participants will be able to access the recorded trainings, so make sure to register before the deadline.  

This program will be accessible to Democrats working in every LD and county in Washington (and across the country!), providing opportunities for PCOs, party officers, and volunteers alike to expand their skills.

“Training the Trainer” means all graduates will not only be trained themselves, they will also become an asset for their own local parties, going on to train new people as volunteers and PCOs are recruited over the course of the cycle! After the program finishes, we will have two drop-in sessions with state party organizing staff to help participants implement what they learn for their local party and, of course, you can always schedule with us to do a special session just for your team.

Participants who complete all twelve sessions will receive program certification from the ASDC (suitable for your resume) and special recognition from the state party. Even more importantly, they will be equipped with the fundamental skills and modern best practices to be a true asset to our Democratic candidates in 2021, 2022, and beyond. 

As an added incentive, we’ll be offering a $1,000 incentive to the top three Local Party Organizations that have the highest percentage of participants based on the number of total possible PCOs. We have designed this friendly competition to be equitable to local parties regardless of size. Winners will be calculated based on the number of participants from your organization who complete the program divided by the number of precincts in your local party’s jurisdiction. To ensure that your submission is counted correctly, please list your LD in the “County/Parish/Borough” section of the sign up form. 

Participation is open to everyone, so no matter how many active PCOs you have, no matter how many volunteers you have, encourage your members, friends, and allied activists to register! This training is so vital for protecting and expanding our Democratic majorities. Take a minute to reserve your spot, and invite three other committed Democrats to join you! 

CLICK HERE to submit your registration for the 2021 T3 Training Program! Registration will close at 8:59 p.m. PT, on Sunday, March 14. It’s the best investment you’ll make in the future of organizing in Washington State!


Thanks, 

Tina
