How to Run for Trustee- ASBA tips/talks

ASBA is working hard to raise awareness about the upcoming elections for school boards (Oct. 18, 2010)

The 2010 school board election package was mailed to EPSB offices March 16. The package included a handbook outlining strategies to promote the election; copies of the "Become a School Ttrustee" brochure and a flyer advertising the campaign school and candidate information sessions. All resources are also avaiable online.

Great information available on ASBA’s site:

Register today for the ASBA’s Running to Win Campaign school (see link above for registration and agenda)

The June 9 Running to win: Campaign school in Red Deer will feature political consultant Ken Chapman talking about how to run an effective local campaign; image consultant Joanne Blake talking about making a great first impression and communications consultant Hank Goertzen on how to write and give an effective speech. The day will close with a panel of trustees telling stories from their personal campaign trail. This workshop is open to anyone thinking about running for the office of school trustee.
