Candidate Training: Social Media During Coronavirus Monday, 5/11

Free, virtual live training from the National Democratic Training Committee. Training will take place on the Zoom platform, so you might want to check that out prior to the class.

Social media is your chance to build a community of supporters when you can’t meet them in-person. If you want your campaign to be successful, you’ll need to make the most out of social media.

Join us Monday, May 11th at 1pm ET [9:00 AM Alaska Time – Ed.] for a Virtual Live Training – Deep Dive into Basics of Social Media.

During this digital session, you’ll learn social media best practices while also giving a deep dive on major platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

RSVP here.
