October 2017 – Online Organizing Tools for Political Organizations

There was no Council of Clubs meeting in October 2017, as this was the same date as the County Convention.

At the convention John Loughlin gave a presentation – Online Organizing Tools for Political Organizations.

The audience participation was great and everyone left having learnt something new about organizing tools, including John.

Slides from the presentation – open as PDF, Powerpoint or Google Slides


A member of the audience, Dana Larabee, recorded the presentation on video, and very kindly shared it with us.

Thanks to Kathy Stadler, Oren Robinson and many Democratic Club members for recommending the tools discussed.
