What is Centralized Training?

RP Centralized Training is a two-day training session for RP Chapter volunteers to:

  • Acquire skills and tools they need to run a successful RP campaign
  • Learn how to talk about RP to donors and potential donors
  • Meet other RP volunteers from within and outside their own Regions
  • Strategize with their RP RVC

What PAOE points or other incentives can we get for attending RP Centralized Training?

There are PAOE and financial incentives available for Chapter RP Chairs or Co-Chairs who attend both a Centralized Training session and their CRC RP session in the same campaign year. The same officer must attend both sessions to qualify. Please contact the RP staff for more information:
