This week's Training Tuesday takes us back to Democracy for America's Campaign Academy in Gettysburg, PA 2009. For the last couple weeks we brought you lessons from the Organizing 2.0 conference, and we still have plenty more to come.

Anyways, first things first, a little history on the DFA campaign academy:

Now on to our lesson for the day. This weeks training is GOTV, or get out the vote. If you missed the training on vote goals and targeting, I suggest watching that lesson real quick.

Without further ado, we present a few quick lessons on GOTV:

Academies Are Great
I attended an early training academy in Charlottesville in early 2004. Those two days were invaluable in preparing the more than 100 participants for conducting campaigns and preparing for elections. We also had several potential candidates present, one of whom I know went on to win a seat on a city council.

If any localities in Virginia wish to host a training academy, please get your application in well as having in place a way to insure good participation. It will be well worth the effort.

DFA Academy in NNews..
We had the training in NNews last March and it is outstanding. If you can, get one in your area. You will learn so much.
