The ASRC and the #RigghtTrack Conversation Team invites you …
May 12, 2018 at 10am – 3:30pm
Asylum Seeker Resource Centre
Come along on Saturday 12th May to share with other project teams how conversations are going, develop strategies together to maximise the political impact of your conversation data and hear about all of the great work happening across the state.
We’ll start with a political update and discuss what this means for our projects, and then after lunch we’ll dive into a series of sessions, including sharing MP engagement strategies, facilitation refresh and how to train facilitators, how to make shmick data reports and some planning time with your project team.

We’ve also been working on updating the electoral profiles following the VIC redistribution which will give us a breakdown on what this means for MPs who have either lost or gained from the process. We’ll also have the first print-out of data ready for you to plan from so all-in-all, we’re hoping it is a really energizing and productive day.
Finally a big thanks to those of you who have offered to facilitate sessions, we will be in touch either by phone or zoom in the next week to plan this out together.
Take care everybody and looking forward to seeing you on the 12th (especially Joel – he is VERY excited!)

Excited to see you there!
