Kickstart is the highly regarded annual residential training weekend organised by ALDC. The weekend brings together some of the party’s most experienced and successful campaigners with campaign teams from across the country. The Kickstart weekend provides training, mentoring, advice, networking and an opportunity to build and improve your campaign plans and knowledge to win elections.
We are delighted to announce that booking is now open for both of our 2017 Kickstart weekends, taking place in July and November. July will also include our new Councillors Weekend. Please book here.
The Councillors Weekend is a new initiative for councillors and it will provide a great opportunity for councillors to network with colleagues from across the country. It includes training on how to be an effective councillor, making the most of your casework and social media training; as well as sessions on some of ALDC’s services for members, including free MyCouncillor sites and templates.
If you’re part of an existing campaign team we recommend coming along as a group to get more from the weekend and to make sure the whole team has a common set of plans. But don’t worry if you’re on your own and/or new to political campaigns, we will be able to help you build an individual plan for whatever you are looking to achieve in campaigning over the next few years.
