ALDC at Conference: Training

ALDC has a packed schedule of campaigns training lined up for Bournemouth.

We’ve split our training into three distinct series; our You Can Do It! series features basics and essentials for new campaigners; On The Council is a series of modules for councillors on making the most of their roles; and our Activists Network sessions are aimed at campaigners with experience of the topic to come and share their stories and tried & tested local campaign techniques.
