HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE

TO YOUR ALBERTA

Volunteers are the lifeblood of political parties. As we get closer and closer to the next general election, we need “all hands-on deck”. You are the glue that holds this party together, that supports our candidates and will help create the reality of an Alberta Party government.

What do you get? First, a sense of pride in helping elect Alberta Party MLAs. Second, lifelong connections to great people who share your values. Third, and most importantly, it’s actually a lot of fun working on campaigns!

There are a number of opportunities to help the Alberta Party prepare for the upcoming election. Local campaigns and organizing will require people in or close to the constituency that needs the support. Provincial committees have remote and online participation from around the province.

No prior experience for most roles? Training is provided!

Some of the roles we are looking for help on…

We are also looking for volunteers to help us manage our major fundraising campaigns. Duties for these roles would be:

  • identification of potential donors, and
  • liaising with party leadership in those engagement efforts.
