Transcript REPORT ON NWPC WORKSHOPS/SEPTEMBER 1977/ San Jose, California Donna Duerk Heather Bloom off the Western Academy presented two workshops - one entitled ORGANIZING MEMBERSHIP AND LEADERSHIP and the other called DESIGNING STRATEGIES AND ACTIONS. Both stressed that to accomplish our goals we must be systematic about planning the energy required and matching it with the resources we have. The Membership workshop posed several questions that we should answer and take action upon - Why should anyone join the Caucus? Why do people drop out? Who are our natural allies and potential members? If people join for social reasons, add social events to our calendar. If people drop out because of boring meetings, make the business sessions shorter. If people don't come back because they feel left out, assign a particular person the task of greeting all newcomers. If minority people are our allies then we should invite them to our events. An organization must create public events to further its goals and reach its potential members. At least half of the people who come to the Caucus come as a result of having been to a specific event that deals with issues that make sense to them. A concerted effort should be made to celebrate whatever level of victory is attained. The Action workshop developed very specific guidelines for planning an event. First list all tasks required in very specific terms. List all the people on hand to do those tasks. IF THE TASKS AND THE PEOPLE AVAILABLE DO NOT MATCH - CHANGE THE EVENT!!IWhen the event is planned this far along assign tasks and a cheerleader/checker to give support to the workers and to reassign work that is not being done in a timely manner. Design a time line for each event including research, publicity,time to organize various phases of the work, task completion time and celebration time. Make sure that the goal is stated in terms of measurable results. This means finding out just what winning looks like and the short-term and long-term goals along the way. Bloom pointed out that there are two types of people who are attracted to the Caucus: election people and issue people. We are likely to see cycles alternating between these two levels of participation and should plan our actions around them. It all boils down to the fact that if we do not know exactly where we are going, we will surely end up somewhere else. "We have met the government and it is not us." Jill Ruckelshaus
