BGP to Offer Candidate Training in 2022

Starting in January 2022, the Baltimore City Green Party will offer a series of campaign training workshops for Green candidates and volunteers. Although the focus will be on Baltimore City, we will also invite candidates and volunteers from across the state of Maryland and throughout the country. 

The series will be designed to allow people to participate in one session or the whole series. Facilitators will include experienced Greens who have worked on some of the most successful Baltimore City Green Party races.

Here are the main topics for the candidate training workshops:

  1. Establishing your campaign
  2. Managing fieldwork
  3. Improving communications
  4. Creating policy and strategy
  5. Fundraising
  6. Planning for election day

Other areas that will be covered include:

  • Public speaking
  • Using technology in elections
  • Setting expectations
  • Volunteer recruiting and management
  • Interacting with the media
  • Maintaining momentum after an election
  • Treasurer Training
  • Creating a culture of care among staff and volunteers
