Have you ever thought to yourself, “it would be nice if NDTC could give me all the best field tools in one training.” Oh, you haven’t? Well regardless, Friday’s training is your one-stop-shop for tactics in the field. From text banking to hosting events, the principles of effective field outreach will be covered while evaluating the pros and cons of each tactic.

Phone Banking for Political Campaigns
Tuesday, September 12 at 1pm ET

Start with a fundamental campaign skill: talking on the phone with voters and supporters. Phone banking continues to be one of the best outreach methods in the world of field strategies.

Even if you have reservations about this process, Tuesday’s trainer will walk you through the industry’s best practices that have helped successful phone banks across the country. Definitely don’t miss out on this one if you’re looking for an effective field tactic.

Door-to-Door Canvassing for Political Campaigns
Thursday, September 14 at 1pm ET

After learning to phone bank, door knocking can be the next field tactic you knock out of the park. Reaching out to voters face-to-face can truly build empathy, support, and get voters to the polls come Election Day.

Navigating a post-lockdown field strategy has unique challenges and opportunities. Consider the cost-benefit analysis of door knocking as a tactic and how to best script your in-person conversations with potential supporters.
