Moderator Training Info Session

Crossing Party Lines

Location: Online

Do you ever wonder what it takes to run a Crossing Party Lines conversation? Are you curious to find out whether you have what it takes? Are you interested in taking your communication skills to the next level? Come to this info session and learn how Crossing Party Lines trains and supports our moderators.

We will:

Show you what a meetup looks like “under the hood”
Gve you a taste of how we prepare to facilitate difficult conversations
Answer any questions you have about moderating CPL-style
Give you a tour of our professionally developed moderator training*
Moderators are the life-blood of CPL. Right now there’s more demand for our conversations than we can keep up with. We CAN change the tone of American politics. YOU can play a part.

Why you? Why now?

COVID restrictions have lifted, and many members have reached out to us asking when we will start offering in-person meetings in their areas. Our answer is always the same: As soon as there’s a trained moderator in your area ready to facilitate those meetings. If you want to participate in local, in-person meetings, we encourage you to attend this info session to learn whether you, or someone you know, would be a good fit for this work.

*Training is a mixture of self-paced lessons, virtual class discussions, one-on-one meetings with the instructor, and virtual practice sessions.
