2017 WINning Women “Boot Camp”
The best way to learn about a future campaign for yourself or a friend is to attend the Georgia’s WIN List April 2017 WINning Women Boot Camps. There are three dates in two locations: Savannah on April 3 or Atlanta on April 5 and 6. Remaining slots for each training session are limited.
The sessions are lead by nationally known Kate Coyne McCoy, who was an early staffer for the EMILY’s List Political Opportunity Program. She has trained thousands of women for successful campaigns and has been called a “National Treasure” in the political world. Many Georgia women currently serving in the legislature or a variety of elected local offices got their first political training during McCoy’s earlier Georgia’s WIN List training appearances.
Here’s what Senator Elena Parent has to say: “WIN List candidate training with Kate Coyne McCoy gave me the foundation I needed to run a winning race. Filled with strategy and fundraising tips and plain old-encouragement, I emerged ready to run and WIN!” DeKalb District Attorney Sherry Boston is also a fan: “WIN List Candidate Training provided me with the network, resources, and information that as a new candidate I needed to launch my first very campaign in 2009. Years later, I can say the tips learned and relationships gained were the keys to the success that I have since experienced.”
The Savannah session will be at The Beach Institute at 502 East Harris Street. The two Atlanta sessions will be at Central Presbyterian Church across from the Georgia Capitol at 201 Washington Street SW. The three all day training sessions begin at 8:30 am and end at 5:30 pm followed by a brief break for participants to make phone calls and check e-mails. Lunch will be served on-site and snacks will be available throughout the day.
Beginning at 6 pm, each training day includes a reception until 7:30 where WIN List donors, board members and elected women will join the group to socialize and hear a keynote speech by Minority House Caucus Chair Stacey Evans, also a former WIN Board Chair, on the topic: “Leading with Passion and Purpose.”
The boot camps have passed. We were able to train over 200 women. Please check back for upcoming boot camp information.
