Catalist Q!

Posted By Brian Stauber, GAIN Intern, Tuesday, May 3, 2011

One of the most important aspects of a campaign’s field plan is targeting the correct chunk of voters to send your message to. Knowing who these folks are is just as critical as crafting the message itself.

Join GAIN on May 10th for a detailed training on the Catalist Q Tool.

The Q tool is a web application that is both the engine behind and the portal into Catalist’s extensive national database. The Q tool enables users to directly and rapidly query, view, visualize, and export a wide range of data points. With its newest version, this is faster and easier than ever.

This is a great chance for you or your staff to a stronger grasp of the toolset, or get a fresh start into one of the main toolsets out there!

Make sure to register early, in person spots go fast! Can’t make it to DC? Sign up for our webinar and receive the exact same training from the comfort of your own home!
