Best Practice Recruitment Training

GetUp's Federal Election Plan is asking Action Groups to step up like they never have before. We are taking on the most hard right members of the Coalition, along with their money and their power! What we have, that they don't is people power! To reach out voter contact goals for  this election, we are going to have to make sure we are working to recruit our current members, and many more. 

Recruitment is not just an ask, or an invite to an event. It is a skill, maybe even an art form! This training is designed to help Action Group Recruitment Leaders, and other interested members, know how to best understand how to recruit new and existing members to calling parties!

We will be looking primarily at how to best use Action Centre, to get the most out of it, but also a wider understanding of how to recruit using both traditional and new techniques. 

This training is what could really make the difference for your work this election and we are excited to see you there! 

What: GetUp Best Practice Recruitment Training
When: 7pm - 8pm AEDT, Wednesday February 20
Where: Online via Zoom

Federal Election Forum #5

*Due to unforeseen circumstances this event has been postponed until Thursday 21st February*
Join us for our fortnightly Federal Election Forum! 

This is the year we take back our politics from the control of hard right MPs like Tony Abbott and Peter Dutton, and put it in the hands of ordinary citizens and progressive champions.

The Federal Election Forum is an online space for us to talk about our election strategy and share important updates about the campaign.

We’ve been working on a document for How We Want To Be this federal election, a doc that sets out the culture, norms and what we can expect from each other as staff and volunteers on what’s shaping up to be a massive campaign.

Why? Because we need a unity of purpose and shared norms around how we work together if we have any hope of getting to the scale we need to be to sweep some of the most powerful people in the country out of our parliament.

Please pay attention to the different time zones! You will get a zoom meeting invite when you RSVP!
  • QLD 6pm - 7.30pm
  • NSW/VIC/ACT 7pm - 8.30pm
  • SA 6.30pm - 8pm
  • WA (standard time) 4pm - 5.30pm
RSVP to receive the zoom link and join us online.
And head on over to the #election_forum channel on Slack for more discussion about the campaign!

PURPOSE OF THE ELECTION FORUM

Election forums are a space where SST and AG representatives come together fortnightly to share key updates, learnings and feedback on election strategy and tactics. We will meet regularly so that communication is clear and flows through our network, ensuring everyone is on the same timeline and that changes are clearly communicated and justified, allowing us to remain agile and work as a movement.

Persuasive Conversations Skills Workshop

This election offers us the greatest opportunity yet to move politics towards GetUp's vision of a fair and flourishing Australia!

In order to shift enough votes to un-elect the hard right MPs we’re targeting we need to have more conversations and more persuasive conversations than ever before.

Join us for an ONLINE introduction to persuasive conversations. Learn techniques of active listening, and how to change minds through values based conversations. Check out this short film on deep canvassing and a real conversation with a voter on marriage equality.

Through real conversations based on empathy and respect, we can rebuild our community, restore public trust, encourage people to act on their compassionate values.
