Week 1 Announcement
In Week One, you will be asked to select a role from the virtual community. Please note that there are ONLY three roles from which you are to choose:
– A campaign manager. Please note: you may choose one particular candidate OR you may envision the processes you would need to follow with any candidate you might manage.
– The head of a public agency. Here you will see the issues from the point of view of a government entity. Again, you do not need to identify the specific agency if you do not wish to; rather, you can discuss the tasks from a more general point of view, discussing how any agency head would have to think about the strategies and responses.
– The head of a nonprofit organization OR an interest group. Note: an interest group might be a nonprofit organization, a business or group of businesses, or a special interest group (e.g. an environmental group or a pro-gun rights group, etc.)
Again, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. It is important to choose the role carefully as you will use it in many assignments.
