NOI is running a special "early admission" blitz this week. Apply now and your application will receive special consideration.

At NOI’s Summer Campaign Boot Camp, you’ll spend one intensive week learning the fundamentals of traditional political campaigning… plus how to leverage technology to maximize a campaign’s fundraising and organizing potential.
This training is not affiliated with a political party, and is welcoming of all progressive organizers interested in joining an upcoming campaign.
During the day, you’ll learn from Dean, Kerry, Clark, Lamont, and MoveOn alums; leaders from current presidential campaigns; experts in voter files, micro-targeting, paid advertising, and earned media; top bloggers and respected authors; and experienced professionals working in this field. In the evening, you’ll work in teams to put the lessons of the day to work on a mock campaign. By the time you leave, you’ll be ready to go work for a progressive campaign or organization.
As an NOI alum, you’ll have instant access to dozens of exciting opportunities in this field, and a permanent network to lean on for career support and strategic advice. Admission is highly competitive. All expenses (including meals and accommodations) are paid. Don’t miss out. Apply today.
REGULAR DEADLINE: April 30, 2007
TRAINING DATES: July 1-8, 2007
P.S. — Don’t take it from us. Here’s what a few of last year’s NOI alums had to say:
"I feel informed and awakened. Before NOI I was participating in a world which relies on online organizing, and was even doing some of this organizing myself. But, I didn’t get it. I didn’t understand the concept of blogs and building a larger e-mail list. Now I know what is going on when I receive an e-mail asking me to take a certain action or tell a friend. Theory and practice are one and I am ready to take on the world… the final test of NOI will be seeing how much it helps me in finding a job and launching a career. On this front the great NOI crew is showing their dedication to the participants by continuing to work for us in pointing us in the direction of eager employers."
– Weldon Kennedy, ONE Campaign (former DSCC)
"It was an incredibly rich experience that I will never forget. It will undoubtedly turn out to be a major turning point in my career, both as an online organizer and as an activist engaged in the struggle to rescue our nation. At NOI, I learned a tremendous amount about both online organizing and traditional campaign tactics and strategies… when it comes to online organizing, there’s no other place in the world where you could get such rich opportunities to meet and learn from the top innovators in the country."
– Ian Kim, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights
"NOI introduced me to the concepts of content management and constituent relationship management, which are central to the training, strategy, and development work I do now. It also helped me begin thinking about how online organizing fits into overall campaign strategy. I should say too that NOI introduced me to a network of friends, mentors, and colleagues who are invaluable to me now. In fact, relationships from NOI helped me get my position at the League, which has been a wonderful fit. I can’t say enough how grateful I am for the week I spent in D.C. with the NOI."
– Kip Williams, League of Young Voters
