2 day training: May 27th and 28th
Daily timing: 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM, Central Time -- including 1 hour break for lunch, plus other breaks throughout. Feel free to snack and do your thing - we are all in this together!

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 couple business days).

Other Details:

  • We will cap each training at 24 people. Expect to participate in discussions in the full group as well as in breakout rooms.
  • We will use Zoom for all trainings. We will offer (short) practice sessions for anyone who wants to get a little more comfortable using Zoom.
  • Shortly before the training, you will receive an email with some more details, including the Zoom meeting link and password.  This will be password-protected.
