San Diego ASA Successfully Hosts Activist Boot Camp

by Eugene Davidovich

This weekend, the San Diego Chapter of Americans for Safe Access helped in hosted the National Activist Boot Camp. The San Diego training was held at the KNB Wine Cellars on Saturday and Sunday and was hosted by Vey Linville and Eugene Davidovich while at the same time, similar trainings were being held at over a dozen other cities throughout the nation.

This weekend at the San Diego training we covered Civics 101, Media Relations, Public Speaking, Lobbying Officials, Know Your Rights training, starting an ASA Chapter or Affiliate, as well as practiced public speaking by having all the participants prepare speeches for the second day of the training and each attendee presented their speech on Sunday morning to the group.

A special thank you to Maureen Orey, CPLP, from Workplace Learning and Performance Group for helping facilitate the training and conducting the active listening exercise and a special thank you to our guest speaker Terrie Best who did an amazing job with the Court Support portion of today’s training!

All attendees received The Medical Cannabis Advocates Hanbook 2011, a thorough 300 page guide for medical marijuana advocates, as well as will receive the videos seen during the training as a DVD in the weeks to come.

If you missed this training, the San Diego Chapter is already gearing up for the next San Diego Activist Boot Camp which will be held on March 19 & 20, 2011 at the Legal Cannabis Institute located at 10459 Roselle Street, Suite A, San Diego, CA 92121
