New Event: Advocating Strategically To Advance the Mission of Your Nonprofit

From our friends at the University at Albany’s Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy:

Nonprofit organizations can advance their missions and increase their impact by strategically engaging in public policy advocacy. This can take a variety of forms, including lobbying, grassroots engagement, coalition building, issue organizing, participating in regulatory activities, professional networking, and developing ongoing working partnerships with government agency representatives. Learn strategies, tactics and the “rules of the road” from an exciting line-up of speakers and local experts.
