Advocacy is the art of advancing a cause, idea or policy through generating and distributing knowledge and facilitating networking and trade. Successful advocacy requires both commitment of people and investment of resources. It can be daunting to think about making a difference, but it is really quite simple if you follow a few best practices. Join us for the first advocacy webinar of 2015. You'll learn best practices and tips for applying advocacy principles for both individual and organizational advocacy. We will also discuss AOC's advocacy roadmap for 2015 and provide an update on activities and legislation before Congress.
The webinar will cover the following topics:
1. Defining advocacy and its value to the public policy process
2. Advocacy versus Lobbying - what separates the two concepts and why is advocacy quickly becoming the preferred method to engage Congress?
3. Advocacy tools, tactics, and best practices for individuals and organizations (plus helpful free resources at your fingertips).
4. AOC Advocacy for 2015: What we've done and what we plan to accomplish in the coming months.
Participants of the webinar will also be able to continue the discussion and to receive guidance from the AOC following the webinar to help you get started and stay involved.
