Organizing a Brigade? We've got you covered.
Over the past five years, our community has learned a lot about what works when organizing a Brigade. We’re excited to help you build a sustainable, civic hacking group in your community.
Here are some resources to help you get started:
The Playbook gives practical advice and real examples on starting and running a sustainable Brigade.
It includes: guidance on hosting hack nights, building a core team, and practicing user-centered design.
The Handbook points to the resources that CfA offers Brigades and how to take advantage of them.
It includes: how to get set up on Meetup, how to use Expensify, and information about the National Advisory Council (NAC).
