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!

 

AGENDA:

6:30 Networking

7:00 CT4P Program with Q&A: “Leveraging Events for Network-building”

Democrats have momentum with a lead in the polls in Virginia, but the race is tight despite Republicans running with a radical Tea Party ticket for Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General led by anti-Women, anti-LGBT GOP Gubernatorial Nominee Ken Cuccinelli:

http://www.networkforprogress.com/2013/05/21/meet-the-va-gops-tea-party-ticket

2009′s 18-point loss in the Virginia governor’s race was a pre-cursor to the 2010 Mid-Term debacle that set back our Movement so it is time to get engaged so we can officially turn the tide on the Tea Party cause of obstructing progress in America!

As you probably have heard or seen, first-ever U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra left the Obama administration to run for Lt. Governor of Virginia with a strong pro-innovation message to make government work better for everyone regardless of party ideology.

WATCH: 6/5 Arlington Lieutenant Governor’s Debate

http://bluevirginia.us/showComment.do?commentId=33355

 

 

ENDORSEMENTS:

 

I’m going to start by sharing the honest analysis of two of the most prominent grassroots voices in Virginia: Blue Virginia’s Lowell Feld & NLS’ Ben Tribbett, then share my thoughts on why I support these candidates as well mostly based on one key element that Democrats must address to win without President Obama on the ballot: ELECTABILITY

 

The only poll shows many undecideds:

http://bluevirginia.us/showDiary.do?diaryId=9398#.UaY5svQjkHU.twitter

 

…but there is lots of information we can consider before choosing our candidates for November.

 

Aneesh Chopra for Lt. Governor:

http://notlarrysabato.typepad.com/doh/2013/06/vote-for-aneesh-chopra.html

aneesh logo 2

 

My FWDPROGRESS Commentary: Aside from leading in a poll and his legit support from progressive Virginia Congressmen Jim Moran, Gerry Connelly and Tom Perriello (2009-2011), the fact is Aneesh’s skills as the first-ever U.S. Chief Technology Officer under President Obama are essential to attracting young, minority and other Federal voters so we can win in November. And not because he’s a young Northern Virginian who is a charismatic speaker that might interest Obama voters….it is because he is a better organizer who can actually help turn them out.

 

CASE STUDY: This past week i tried out Aneesh’s Digital Grassroots platform that he has been promoting and i matched 333 facebook friends with the campaign’s voter list and have been empowered to use an online tool to call them and otherwise i now know who i should encourage to vote for Aneesh this weekend.  Meanwhile, I finally decided to try Ralph Northam’s email list and he is sending me emails to ask for $50.

 

Ralph is being very bold on some issues right now and was even endorsed by the Washington Post, but as someone who seems to have considered switching parties as recently as 2009 (see Ben’s endorsement) and who began his campaign by using a Crab in his logo, which is a regional symbol of the Chesapeake Bay and Maryland(!) to most Virginians, it seems we would be going in a “Creigh Deeds” direction with a tone-deaf campaign on the ballot.

 

N4P POST: Learn More & Get Involved with Aneesh Chopra!

http://www.networkforprogress.com/2013/06/09/aneeshchopra

 

Mark Herring for Attorney General:

MHerring_266

http://www.bluevirginia.us/diary/8352/my-first-endorsement-for-2013-mark-herring-an-attorney-general-we-can-be-proud-of#.Uaey1FDmDQ4.twitter

http://notlarrysabato.typepad.com/doh/2013/06/endorsement-for-attorney-general.html

 

My FWDPROGRESS Commentary: I have learned over the years why experience matters and this is one of those reasons. Although Mark’s campaign has been pretty traditional and has had trouble winning local Democratic straw polls but the statewide primary electorate is more important. Ben Tribbett has reported that Justin Fairfax has not purchased the voter file, which is essential to targeting voters by mail, phone or canvassing, and to get on the ballot he needed to spend $100,000 to gather over 10,000 signatures (well-above the going rate).

Mark has been a State Senator in “Battleground” Loudon County since 2006 who has a legislative track record and is speaking out on several key issues, so despite having a rising star potential and being endorsed by the Washington Post, the fact is Justin has never run for office before and hasn’t learn how quite yet. In the general election the statewide Coordinated Campaign will pool field operations but this is a test of running for public office that we can’t ignore if we want to win the Attorney General’s job back for the first time in decades.


The poll shows the race is tight, but this dynamic probably will be the deciding factor.
