Taking Action Starting Today!
A week ago I woke up at 1:30am sitting on the couch with the television blaring, my headsets still on, and a stiff neck. But all was ok because the first words I heard were “Two for two”. That is, conservatives won the 9th Congressional seat in New York and easily kept the House seat in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District.
I am sure that all of you have read and heard about both of these big wins so I won’t bore you with restating the facts. However, I do want to take this moment to congratulate all of the estimated 30 to 40 million tea party members and followers who are voicing their opinions and will not be silenced. This was not just a New York moment, this was a “tea party moment” and we need to savor it.
Ok, now we have finished savoring and we need to start thinking and planning for 2012. We need your help! There are so many things that you can do — whatever your circumstance. Here are a few Palm Beach County Tea Party teams that I hope you will consider joining:
- Oversight Team (federal, state, or local) — Pick an elected official, a legislative body, a candidate, or an issue you are interested in and track them like a bloodhound. Share any news and/or blogs you consider important. When you find information we should know, send it to us and we will send your information out to our membership, post it on our websites, facebook, etc..
- Media Contact Team — This is an exciting new team where you will interact with specific media! You will follow and provide responses to articles, posts, etc.
- Connect Team — This is a critical team where you welcome new members and integrate them into PBCTP. Its a great way to meet new people and tap into their passion directing them to the right activity within the Tea Party
- Social Media Team — Help plan and implement training courses for our members so they are more savvy tapping into social media tools like facebook, twitter, and our website. Create strategies to effectively use these new media to effectively get our message out.
- Newsletter Team — We are putting together our first Palm Beach County Newsletter. If your passion is writing, we need you!
- Operation Reach Out Team — Reach out into the business community, colleges, nursing homes, and special shows like Antique Shows, meeting with private organizations, etc.
- Fundraising — We have a robust fundraising team that is working on two big fundraisers, a Gold Party and Fashion Show. We need more ideas and help on implementation of ideas.
- Event Planning Team– Help plan monthly meetings, candidate forums, special movie nights, rallies, etc.
To get more information about or to join one of these teams, please email us at email@example.com.
Lastly, someone told me the other day that:
“There is not a Tea Party person that cannot take on a significant role to help move us to victory in 2012.
If you cannot join one of the above teams, you can always join the Donor Team!”
