Florida Chapter Political Training May 17 in Lakeland
Please RSVP to Janet Stanko,[masked] or [masked]
WHAT: Political trailing available for all Group Political Chairs and others interested in getting involved in the Sierra Club endorsement process. It is mandatory for at least one person from each group that does endorsements to have at least one person in their group who has attended this training. We are keeping it to one day at the Circle B Bar Ranch Preserve in Lakeland.
This is a great opportunity to get more people in your group able to take on leadership or a significant role in the political endorsement and campaign process. Common sense does not serve us well—we must align our activities with election law. You can learn from your more experienced peers from other groups too.
Expenses are covered by Chapter according to our reimbursement guidelines.
