Winning Campaigns Training
Are you are a parent who wants to improve safety and encourage students to ride to school, a city planner who cares about bike lanes, or a concerned neighbor who thinks children should know more about the importance of helmets and lights? If so, read on- the Alliance for Biking & Walking and the Palmetto Cycling Coalition have teamed up to bring a valuable training to Columbia for people just like you!
The Alliance created their Winning Campaigns Trainings to help you get your projects off the ground. Whether you are a novice or veteran advocate, the training is a three-day boot camp designed to give you the tools you need to create and manage powerful campaigns in your communities.
Columbia will play host to the last of six Winning Campaigns Training this year from Nove. 4 to 6. This dynamic and sought-after training focuses on the seven key skills of an effective campaign, in the context of biking and walking organizational building. The proven curriculum will help you choose, direct, and win campaigns to promote better biking and walking. After three days of fun and inspiring work with the country’s leading experts in advocacy, you’ll come away with the tools and confidence to be a better leader in your community — one who knows not just how to advocate for improvements, but win them.
Our generous sponsors for this event include the Hawley Company, Planet Bike, Bicycling and Walking Vacations, SRAM, Bikes Belong, Specialized, AARP, Sun, Alta Planning and Team Estrogen.
Early registration for this training ends Oct. 7, and there are scholarships available, so sign up now and don’t miss your chance to have a real impact on cycling in our state!
