Your Professor: Chuck Muth
The Citizen Outreach Foundation is offering another great training event next week and we want you to be there. Please join us on September 2, 2011 at 2:30 – 4:30 inside Mundo: a Latin Chic Restaurant for a Campaign Communications 101 workshop. We’re offering this training free of charge to the first 40 who register by contacting Felecia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Campaign Communications 101
When it comes to dealing with the press, conservative candidates, party leaders and activists generally stink on ice.
Yet getting your message out through the mainstream media – where most voters get their news – is absolutely critical, especially for underfunded campaigns. The key is in learning how to do it properly and professionally. And when it comes to stump speeches, they’re not much better. Tom Lehrer, one of our nation’s greatest satirical songwriters from the 50s and 60s, once said, “I feel that if a person has problems communicating the very least he can do is to shut up.” How many times have you thought the same thing when listening to most political candidates?
Whether you’re running for office or managing a campaign; whether you’re a party leader or conservative activist trying to get your message out, Campaign Communications 101 is a must-attend workshop where you’ll learn important tips and inside secrets to developing an effective campaign message and delivering it to the masses on a shoestring budget, including…
• The all-important, little-known Strategic Message Grid
• Inside secrets to great political speeches – from an Israeli political consultant
• The red pen/blue pen test for the “I-disease”
• The essential components of a media list
• How to use the right “form” when submitting news releases
• A 10-point checklist for getting news releases covered by the news
• The seven most common subjects for campaign news releases
• Tips on how to get the media to notice your media release
• Ten ways to make your press releases more “newsworthy”
• The 12 Immutable Laws for dealing with the press
• Nightmare examples of how NOT to deal with the press
SPECIAL BONUS WORKSHOP: BLOGGING 101
A blog is not like the Field of Dreams; just because you build it, doesn’t mean they’ll come. At this workshop, you’ll learn secrets for publishing a blog that not only will people want to read every day, but how to use your blog and other “new media” for political activism that will make a difference, including…
• The little-known power of “Google Alerts”
• The four “B’s” of an effective blog
• The single, most important thing you better never lose…or else turn out the lights; your blog party will be over
• Where to find the “textbook” that will teach you all you’ll ever need to learn about writing killer headlines
• How to use the power of “short”
• The eight keys to writing blog posts that people will actually want to read
• How to use Twitter to boost your blog’s e-presence and gain new readers
• The most imporant “plug-in” that can make you a one-man (or woman) e-activist extraordinaire
• How to robo-call your way to fame and fortune…or at least effective political action
Space is limited to the first 40!

This month’s Special Guest… Christine O’Donnell!
Christine O’Donnell will be signing copies of her new book Troublemaker: Let’s Do What it Takes to Make America Great Again.
As a woman of principled determination, with a governing philosophy centered on the core values of the great American tradition and a wide experience in taking on the liberal establishment, Christine O’Donnell was a candidate for U.S. Senate from the First State.
Christine has served as a marketing and media consultant to various clients, including: Icon Pictures’ The Passion of The Christ, Natalia Tsarkova, the Vatican’s first female portrait painter, and non-profit organizations such as the World Education and Development Fund, a charity that provides scholarships to children in poor communities throughout Latin America.
After attending Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ, Christine was awarded a 2002 Abraham Lincoln Graduate Fellowship in Constitutional Government from the Claremont Institute in Claremont, CA. She resides in Wilmington, DE.
Christine O’Donnell is a nationally recognized political commentator and marketing consultant. She has appeared on national news outlets such as the Fox News Channel, CNN, C-SPAN, MSNBC and ABC, including major ratings hits like “The O’Reilly Factor,” “Sean Hannity Show,” “The Glenn Beck Show,” “Hardball with Chris Matthews” and “Entertainment Tonight.” Christine has also been a radio talk show guest-host on WGMD in Rehoboth Beach and WDEL in Wilmington.
As part of a delegation of journalists, Christine toured the middle-eastern country of Jordan as a guest of the Royal Jordanian government. Having witnessed firsthand the oppression in the Middle East, Christine describes this journey as truly a life changing experience and says it deepened her commitment to the women’s movement.
An effective communicator, Christine is known for her skill in winning over even those who disagree with her most. Liberal Bill Maher stated, “I don’t know how many times you’ve been here but it’s always a good show when you’re on.” Even Democratic strategist James Carville was forced to admit of Christine O’Donnell “Now, this is one hip woman,” on CNN’s “Crossfire.”
During her 20-year career, Christine has served as a social advocate in Washington, D.C., participating in regular White House and Capitol Hill strategy meetings and leading delegations to the United Nations to lobby on behalf of pro-family global policies. She’s successfully debated Cabinet members, lawmakers and international leaders.
In the early 1990’s Christine worked for the Republican National Committee (under then Chairman Haley Barbour) helping to develop the marketing strategy credited with having had a key role in the historic ’94 Republican Congressional sweep.
