With Kathleen Coyne-McCoy, M.S.W.

Cost: $95.00


Social work is a political profession with a strong history of influencing policy through participation in electoral politics. This one day workshop will train participants how to run a winning campaign as a candidate for elected office, campaign manager or volunteer/staff.  Participants will gain hands-on experience with a variety of skills that are useful in many practice settings, including messaging, networking, fundraising and professional use of self. Even those who do not have any current ambition to run themselves are changed by the understanding of their own political power.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will discuss social workers’ ethical and professional responsibilities to engage in social change, as outlined in the National Association of Social Workers’ Code of Ethics. Attendees will learn ways in which social workers can engage in political action in order to meet this ethical obligation.
  2. Participants will learn the terminology, roles and typical practices of an electoral campaign and will leave prepared to engage with electoral politics as a leader on a campaign or as a candidate themselves.
  3. Participants will gain hands-on experience with a variety of skills that are useful in many practice settings, including messaging, networking, fundraising and professional use of self.

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credits. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEUs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”
