The Women’s Campaign School (WCS) began in Vancouver and is the longest-running campaign school of its kind in Canada. This year, the Canadian Women Voters Congress is proud to offer Calgary’s first Women’s Campaign School.
The discussions, panels and workshops will focus on preparing you to run for office or work on a campaign. The topics will cover everything you need to know about fundraising, building a campaign team, advertisements, voter identification, social media, surveys and so much more.
The speakers are veteran elected officials and campaign organizers from all parties, coming together at this non-partisan event to share practical skills and first-hand experiences working in our political system. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

Join Trish Kelly and a line-up of energetic presenters discussing the barriers to women entering politics
