Campaign House Party

Planning Your House Party

To organize a campaign house party with a guest speaker within 6 weeks, start by selecting a suitable host location and securing a relevant guest speaker. Set a convenient date, avoiding clashes with major events. Design and distribute flyers, both physical and in HTML format, detailing the event, speaker, and RSVP instructions. Manage RSVPs, plan event logistics like seating and refreshments, and coordinate volunteer roles. In the final week, confirm details with the speaker and volunteers, complete the setup, and execute the event. This structured approach ensures a well-organized, engaging house party, fostering community support and enhancing the campaign’s outreach.

Organizing a campaign house party featuring a guest speaker is an effective way to engage supporters in a more intimate setting. Here’s a plan to execute this event within a 6-week timeframe:
