Tuesday, April 25, 2017
Session I: 9:15 – 10:30 AM


As school administrators, educators or ordinary citizens, everyone should have a fundamental understanding of the roles and rules of government. As well, everyone should know how to engage their elected and appointed policymakers. This “Advocacy 101” session will provide participants with basic tips on how to be an effective advocate for yourself, your community and the issues that matter most to you and your work. A panel of practioners, congressional staff, policy makers and professional advocates will share their advice and answer questions about how to effectively ‘advocate’ under the 4P Principle (policy, politicians, protocol and politics), effectively using economic and programmatic data to inform and educated policymakers so that you can make an impact on public policy at every level of government.
