The Master Class program is focused on the specific tools that organizers use every day, and helping intermediate users become efficient, effective power users. Feel free to bring tool-specific questions to the session.

The NationBuilder Master Class will cover five areas of recent innovation that can give you a decided digital organizing advantage:

  1. New tools that allow you to access social media engagers of your peers, opponents, and major national political figures within your own database, and turn them into your donors and volunteers.
  2. Advanced tactics for giving everyone in your community their own personal page within your own site, incentivizing them to share, and how this can greatly multiply your reach.
  3. Major upgrades to online directories to allow members to connect digitally with other members of your community.
  4. New “liquid templating” allowing for super-personalization of blast emails.
  5. Advancements in data sharing between friendly organizations and political parties with one simple click, while protecting privacy.
