Make sure that everything is ready to go before your call party. Although not necessary, snacks could create a good vibe. You can also suggest everyone brings something to share! It would also be good to make water easily available – making calls is thirsty work!
You'll need to print out these resources for your party. Here are some notes to help you brief the volunteers who join you:
Please get volunteers to sign in, then return their details to us so we can keep them updated on the campaign:
Sign-in sheet (with space to add details for your next calling party so people can sign up!)
Everyone who comes along will need a copy of:
The call script: this gives you an idea of how to structure your conversations – use the script as a guide, but please make sure you say the highlighted text to comply with electoral and privacy laws.
Call instructions: example (the dialler number and campaign code will be sent to you by email from ACF two days beforehand)
Campaign information: this explains the electorate you're calling, and has some useful info for using in calls.
Chisholm / Macnamara / Bonner
The above resources will also be sent to you via email after the details of your call party are confirmed.
