Advocacy 101 workshops teach you the basics of being a good advocate – as an individual and an organization. We’ll cover topics such as:

  • What can my lake organization do under the law to influence lawmakers? Can my group do lobbying?
  • What are the best ways to communicate and build effective relationships with lawmakers?
  • How can I have an impact and advocate for my lake if my voting address is different from my lake home?
  • How do we build consensus within our own organization as to the group’s position on an issue, or even whether to advocate one way or another as a group?

The training runs three hours and is free, but registration is required. Light refreshments will be served. Contact for more information or register here.
