Advocacy 101 - Framing Your Message for Effective Communications

Posted By Cindy Bishop, Checkmate Strategies, Wednesday, November 04, 2015
We would like to offer your non profit association an opportunity to provide an advocacy training program to your members or stakeholders.  We can customize our three (3) hour presentation to meet the needs of your Association and its' members.  
Advocacy 101: The Basics of Communicating Effectively with Public Policy Makers teaches how to frame your message to influence public policy makers.

  • Topics include the composition of the state legislature  
  • who to call
  • when to call
  • what to say to get your message across effectively

About l/3 of the Louisiana Legislature will change in January when the term limited and retiring legislators leave office and the newly elected lawmakers are sworn in  

Considering the state is facing a tremendous budget deficit and we are getting a new administration in January, the time is now to gear up for the regular and special legislative sessions.  We predict that the new governor will call one, possibly two, special sessions of the state legislature between January through June. If your association retains a lobbyist,  we can work with them to optimize this presentation. 
Attached is more information about Checkmate Strategies  as well as information on our Advocacy Training 101.  With the new Administration coming in January 2016,   we can work with you to schedule a customized presentation.
My contact information is (225) 933-5435 or
