While direct lobbying is seen as an essential component of policy change, organizations may not fully leverage the power of communications to keep stakeholders engaged, generate exposure and create a constant drumbeat of messages to achieve policy successes. In this session, participants will learn about specific communications strategies they can use to advance their nonprofit’s policy goals.

Event Description

Nonprofit communications, marketing and public relations staff; executive directors; government relations, public affairs and policy staff; contract lobbyists.
