About this course: Events can be effective for meeting voters, building relationships, and raising money. They can also be a drain on valuable resources: time, money, and people. Thoughtful and thorough planning is the only way to make sure that your events are more gain than drain. In this course, we cover what you need to know to plan successful events that contribute to your field and fundraising goals.
When to take this course: Take this course 4-8 weeks before your first campaign event－be that a meet and greet or fundraisers. But if you already have a couple events on the books and coming up soon, check out the logistics section to get you ready for event day.
