Activism Workshop

"Rule number 8. You can't beat a plan with no plan." - Laws of Public Policy Process, Morton Blackwell, Founder, The Leadership Institute

Most elections are lost not because of lack of time, talent, or treasure, but how they executed the resources they had. Are you prepared for the next round of elections? What is your plan to recruit volunteers? To organize your area? To turn out the vote?

The Campaign Activism and Leadership Workshop will quickly teach you the tools you need to make a winning plan for your campaigns.

Ideal attendees for the Campaign Activism and Leadership Workshop are volunteers, current and potential precinct chairs, elected officials, current or future candidates for political office, campaign operatives, and party officials.

Attendees will learn how to:
• Grow their organizations
• Organize precincts for voter contact
• Turn out their voters

“Universally everyone has applauded the quality of instruction that is provided by the Leadership Institute. The amazing information that they gather.  Their perspective and experience of those giving the courses, It has been really without parallel."   James Dickey, Chairman, Republican Party of Texas 


This past spring and summer, the Leadership Institute hosted a series of campaign schools across the state of Texas. This workshop is a continuation of this educational series. The content is different than the previous class. While the focus is for volunteer and precinct leaders, it is also useful for campaign staffers and party members. Attendees did not have to attend the previous school to benefit from this training. All are welcome.

"The Leadership Institute made it possible for me to learn how to run a campaign, how to craft my message, how to speak effectively in public, and how to handle the media.

Above all, I learned how to win.

Today, I stand in a long line of conservative leaders who owe a debt of gratitude to Morton Blackwell and to the Leadership Institute.

"Finally, after so many years of being a volunteer, can understand how a campaign is set up and run. I now understand more about the nuts and bolts of a campaign. The tips on marketing door to door, etc. are a great help and I will use them with my team. The presentation went so fast and smoothly that I didn't realize that we were ending so soon."
