Leadership Institute trains Canadian Conservatives poised to take back Alberta
February 6, 2017 | By Ron Nehring, Director of International Programs
With the left in control in “the Texas of Canada,” conservatives in Alberta are gearing up for a comeback.
On Saturday, January 21 the Leadership Institute trained 223 activists, elected officials and future candidates with an intensive program that brought participants from throughout Alberta and as far away as Edmonton.
Leadership Institute Director of International Programs Ron Nehring and expert faculty member Bill Faulk of New York led the program. They were accompanied by William McBeath of the Manning Centre.
The overwhelming attendance shows a “pent-up demand for this kind of training” according to one Conservative Party leader.
Participants received training in subjects including the real nature of politics and elections, campaign strategy, crisis communications, digital activism, campaign messaging, and more.
The Calgary program was the second in a series of six programs the Leadership Institute is holding throughout Canada in 2016 and 2017. Future programs are already on the books for Halifax, Toronto, and Ottawa.
