Being a member is the only way to have a say in the upcoming Liberal Leadership election and we only have until December 2nd to engage everyone who is interested in being a voice for change.
Kate is here to change how we do politics. She wants to see a government that gets us there by listening to people, by collaborating widely to solve hard problems, and by giving people the tools they need to have a meaningful impact on the issues they care about.
This message resonates with so many people but unless they become members of the Ontario Liberal Party by December 2nd, they won’t have a vote.
Help us get more people to join the the Ontario Liberal Party so they can share their voice in support of Kate.
Not sure how to do this? We've got some tips below.
How can I sell memberships?
The best way to sell memberships is to ask your friends, family, neighbours or any member of your community. You can do this by asking them individually, either in person, through email, social media, or a phone call. BUT, if you want to have a little bit of fun, you can consider the following:
► Host a coffee party
► Host a potluck
► Host a dinner party
Hosting a gathering of people you know can help sell multiple memberships at once, and it provides a fun social setting for people to talk about Kate and the values she is bringing to the Liberal leadership race.
Also, if you host an event, Kate can call or video in to talk to your attendees.
If you want some tips on what to say, check out our Talking About Kate page.
When can I sell memberships?
You can sell memberships up until the membership cutoff, which is 5pm EST on December 2nd.
Who can become a member?
Anyone who resides in the province of Ontario, and is over 14 years of age can become a member of the Ontario Liberal Party.
