New Mexico Civic Engagement Table (NMCET)
Center for Civic Policy (CCP)
will host a Get out the Count or GOTC training next week. The purpose is to provide train-the-trainer canvassing and capacity-building to optimize the activation phase of GOTC for Census field operations.
The meeting will be held from

at the NM Department of Transportation, 1117 Stanford NE in Albuquerque.
The session will include:
- Gaining a clear understanding of the individual and collective responsibility as GOTC canvasser to report from March 12 to May 12 as part of outreach, conversations at the doors, and completed Census forms per day and week.
- Crafting and practicing the GOTC script at the doors that includes the Census Online Self-Response Form assistance.
- Practicing door knocking techniques and best tips as canvassers to engage residents, ensuring the importance to collect the right data in every attempt that we have using the VAN system.
- Sharing best practices from GOTV (Get Out the Vote) experiences and ensuring the creation of an GOTC momentum and emotion with benchmark goals as part of the field operation canvassing sprint from March 12 - May 12.
