Ballot Measure Leader Training Program

BISC’s 2023 Ballot Measure Leader Training Program is happening in person August 8-10th in St. Louis Missouri!

BISC’s Ballot Measure Leader Training Program provides you with the fundamentals to elevate your leadership through every phase of a ballot measure campaign. With a focus on new and emerging leaders, this first-of-its kind training prepares you to run winning, transformational campaigns that leave leadership and infrastructure behind long after Election Day.

About the 2023 Training Program:

  • Self-Guided Virtual Training: The first option is purchasing pre-recorded training modules that you can watch at your own pace and learn at home. Depending on which package or individual module you purchase, you will have access to the content and training materials for a set period of time. You can learn more through the FAQ page and apply to access the Member Store here.
  • 2023 In-Person Training Program: We’re back to training in-person this summer in St. Louis, Missouri!

Hear what our training grads have to say:

“The BISC campaign manager training is a powerful experience. I gained skills to manage areas of campaigns that weren’t my speciality along with learning how to use a campaign to build long term power beyond my specific ballot measure. I would recommend their training to anyone who believes that through strategy and hard work we can move our world towards justice.”

— Brad Christian-Sallis at Civic Nebraska

“After a while we saw that there was a moment and excitement for a wage type increase initiative was very real in Arizona, and it was something that people did not predict in 2013. As we cultivated a relationship with BISC, we started gaining resources on how to create a ballot initiative, how to win a ballot initiative, how to use the resources that BISC provides to ensure that the communities of color who brought these ideas got to be leaders within the campaign. We wanted people of color to run it. And so the collaboration between BISC and LUCHA, to build the foundation for ballot initiatives, would be a game changer for the state of Arizona.”

— Tomas Robles, Co-Executive Director, Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA)
