We are now taking applications for Independent Voting’s Spokesperson Training, which will be Monday January 30 at 6:30pm ET. This is Independent Voting’s flagship program, designed to give independents the tools to talk about why you’re an independent and to go up against the media’s portrayal of us as hidden partisans. The training is part educational, part performance training. There is a Q&A section with Jackie Salit and you’ll have the opportunity to work with two top notch performance trainers. The program has received rave reviews from people who have participated. Spaces are limited so if you’re interested, you can submit your application attinyurl.com/indytraining or send an email to Gwen Mandell by replying to the invitation you received for today’s event.
