Hosts and Hostesses

You should have hosts and hostesses to greet the volunteers when they come through the headquarters door to set and maintain a congenial and friendly atmosphere. They will do such things as sign in the volunteers, give them their identification badges, give them their canvass kits before they meet the instructors, serve them refreshments, and answer any general questions the volunteers may have.



The Instructors are perhaps the most important people in your organization. The Instructors inform the volunteers-- in groups of 10 to 20-- of the program goals and instruct them in how they will help carry out these objectives. The Instructors must be friendly, articulate individuals who will train and instill in the door-to-door volunteers a firm understanding of their mission. The Instructors could be teachers or professors, veteran Republican office-holders, or Republican leaders who have captured the imagination and following of others.
