Preparing for the 2020 Elections

Are you preparing for the 2020 Elections?

While other media may be fixated on the Presidential election next year, local election coverage is one of the essential services that PEG channels can provide. And if you do it right, it can help you tell the story of how important what you do is in the life of local democracy.  

Now is the time to prepare for the 2020 Elections – make sure you have the right policies in place, and are prepared to help voters in your community make their choices on issues and candidates.   To help you along, we’ll cover election preparations in our first webinar of 2020 on January 15 at 3pm ET. Join us as we talk about useful policies and innovative election coverage that you can coordinate in your community. Come with your questions! You can register here.

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who made contributions to the ACM Foundation for next year’s Emerging Leaders Institute on Giving Tuesday! We received close to $1,600 in gifts that day – so we are extending our deadline to year-end on 12/31 with a goal of $3,000 in gifts; which will unlock another $1,500 in matching donations from other ACM members! Your gift to the Foundation is tax deductible – and is deeply appreciated.
