Join Network For Progress, a media-savvy Advocate, social-savvy Community and movement-building Resource for forward-minded Grassroots Action,
as we host a bi-partisan meetup with a DC Comm Tech For Progress speaker series program on how to host and promote successful events as well as how to be most effective in interacting with your fellow guests!

Whether you are looking to build connections to build a Movement for a cause or build your Career or Business for your own professional development, the ability to host and/or connect at events is extremely valuable to network-building.

Relationships are the single most important marketing tool to building influence and the best way to develop relationships is face-to-face through offline social engagement.


And what is so “bi-partisan” about the program? Since mastering events is not an ideological skill, we will be joined by Chad Barth of Eventbrite, who worked at the Republican National Committee for eight years and served as
Deputy Strategy Director for Political Technologies and can provide a unique perspective that even many smart Democratic organizers might not have about the use of relationship-building on the right.


We will also discuss a special EVENT that Network For Progress would like help with planning for 2014!

Do you want to put the COMMUNITY back into Community Organizing and the PARTY back into the Democratic Party? If so, Yes YOU Can….with Network For Progress!

N4P is a new member of the Woman’s National Democratic Club (www.democraticwoman.org) and and is co-working with OFA’s Ward 1 & Ward 2 volunteer activities there with room for several Progress Fellows to help us 10-15 hours per week to develop our infrastructure so our efforts are more effective and scalable to engage, network and develop grassroots activists nationwide before and after the election. Duties include Get-Out-The-Vote VA and other Grassroots recruitment, Project & Member Management, Web Site, Press, Social Media, Event Planning and much more.

N4P is focused on combating the institutional strength of the Conservative Movement (aka “Tea Party” & Fox News) and preventing an “enthusiasm gap” through social and media-savvy Movement-building initiatives that better network our current supporters, engage potential supporters and develop our evangelists for Hope & Change to deliver PROGRESS.

In other words: Recruitment -> Retention -> Training -> Action

Why Movement-building? Because this kind of organizing and activism is focused on a simple fact: RELATIONSHIPS (from interpersonal friendships to branded messages) are the key to influence and fuel participation in fundraising, volunteering, sharing and VOTING.

In DC, that means a vibrant online community on google, facebook and twitter matched with offline community events like “1st Thursday” Happy Hours to compete with the Conservative “1st Fridays” on Capitol Hill to bring our movement together:

Recent events have included a Debate Watch Party with Hot 99.5’s Toby Knapp, Rumble 2012 Debate Party with Social Media Club and our 6th Mixer & Date Auction.

If you were late to getting a more formal role in an organization this Fall or would otherwise like a flexible leadership experience where you can learn about ALL aspects of organizing and activism beyond Election Day, please email us with your resume and a brief cover letter at networkforprogress@gmail.com ASAP.

You can also meet us at our Eventbrite-sponsored volunteer night at Woman’s National Democratic Club on Monday: http://godcvolunteer.eventbrite.com
