3 day training: March 13-15, 2023
Daily timing: 10:30 AM - 3:30 pm Central Time -- including a long break for lunch, plus other breaks throughout. Feel free to snack and do your thing - we are all in this together!
OPTIONAL conversation hours: We will have an update on additional, optional discussion opportunities - expect more information after registration.


We are offering a sliding scale for these online trainings because we want them to be accessible to everyone.  

During registration, you will be asked to select your organizational budget. The amount you will be charged is displayed there as well.

After registration, you will receive TWO emails - one automatically from Action Network; one from Midwest Academy with your invoice and a payment link (that one might take a few business days).

Other Details:

  • We will cap each training at 25 people. Expect to participate in discussions in the full group as well as in breakout rooms.
    Because of this, we ask organizations to limit the number of participants in a single training to 3.
  • You'll note 3 optional demographics questions at the end of the registration; if you are registering someone else, do NOT complete these questions.  
    (Why are we asking this? As a nonprofit, we, like many of you, receive grant funding; these funding sources often ask basic demographics questions. We will only share aggregate, anonymous responses with funders, and will NEVER include identifying information.)
  • We will use Zoom Meetings for all trainings. You can join by browser, but the App is recommended (we like to annotate and use reactions).
  • Shortly before the training, you will receive an email with some more details - including the Zoom link, final agenda, and a brief participant list (first name, org, role, and state for those who consented).

If you have ANY questions or concerns, or to be added to our waitlist, please reach out to us:

Auto-captions and slides are always available. Please let us know any other access needs - interpretation/translation, ASL, CART, low-vision/screenreader-friendly materials, etc. - in our "accommodations" question.
