It’s almost summer and that means
we’re getting into the
heat of campaign season. If you are interested in working or
volunteering on a
campaign, Democratic GAIN is here to get you up to speed on one of the
crucial technological tools of a campaign: VAN
(Voter Activation Network), the
world's largest provider of voter file technology to Democrats and
VAN is used by nearly
every Democratic campaign across the
country to manage voter contact and to expedite GOTV. This Friday, June
4th, Democratic GAIN will be holding two VAN
trainings, one for beginners
and one for advanced users.
The beginner session will cover the basics with an
of the general site layout as well as types of data found in VAN. The event
will include a discussion on the types of data typically found in VAN and who
administers this data. This session is for anyone who has not used VAN, needs a refresher or has very limited knowledge
of the tool. Click here to see more details and to register!
The advanced session will have an in depth
discussion of user/data
management. Topics will include: How to best utilize VAN
for voter ID,
volunteer input and management for My Campaign. The session will also
cover an introduction to
the development and integration of VAN’s new
media tools. This event is aimed
toward those with basic VAN experience. Click here to see more details and to register!
