Invited by the ALDE Party and the European Liberal Forum, fundraising and data officers of ALDE member parties met together on 26 and 27 October for a training and networking session in Dublin, Ireland.
Over the course of the two days, the fundraisers discussed issues such as why fundraising is necessary for political parties, how membership can be used as a fundraising tool and how to be successful in corporate fundraising.
Meanwhile, the data officers met on issues such as why a national contacts' database is needed, and how social media can improve targeting. Both groups also combined for important training on the new data protection regulations which will come into force next year as well as the software that will enable successful election fundraising and campaigning.
The ALDE Party would like to thank and congratulate all participants for their full commitment to this training and networking seminar. We sincerely hope this served as a useful and strategic start to many successful and fruitful liberal campaigns to come!
We would also like to thank the European Liberal Forum for their generous support of this training.
