A training on “Introduction to Strategic Campaign Research” will be held on November 17-19 at the Maritime Institute in Maryland. “Union staff have attended this annual training in recent years and rated it highly,” says Julie Farb Blain, Director of the AFL-CIO Center for Strategic Research, which is presenting the training. The class is designed for union staff who are new to strategic research. The training will take place after the elections, but anyone interested must register by October 31. “This is a popular class that tends to fill up before the deadline,” says Blain.
