It is our pleasure to announce the creation of a new full-time Grassroots Network staff position. Gwyn Jones will be assuming the position. Gwyn has staffed the Grassroots Network on a part-time basis in 2014.
Join us on Wednesday, January 14 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT/6 p.m. MT/5 p.m. PT for our monthly Grassroots Network open call. These monthly calls, slated for the 2nd Wednesday of every month, are open to all Grassroots Network members and are intended to provide timely resource, skills and Club information relevant to our grassroots activists. This month's call will focus on coordination and collaboration of Grassroots Newtork Teams with national campaigns and staffers, especially where both are engaged on federal/national issues.
2015 is set to be a big year of ‘new’ for the Sierra Club. As such, Digital Strategies and Chapter Support have partnered on a project to make the most of all the technologies available. The preliminary goal of this project, called AddUp Power, is to figure out how local entities and grassroots teams can get the most out of AddUp. The end result of this project will be a package of actionable resources for Chapters and Groups to create effective campaign plans that utilize multiple online channels including AddUp to build power on the ground.
