Are You Protected for 2016 ?
Non-Profit Organizations are essential to Louisiana in that they allow citizens to have a voice in the public policy arena. Unfortunately, Louisiana is facing a tremendous budget deficit and all state funding will be on the table. Checkmate Strategies is here to work with you, to insure that your monies stays safe, so you can continue to provide high quality services and products to the citizens of our great state. We understand the vitality of non-profits and believe that everyone should have the fairest chance possible to make a difference. Please look over some of the services we offer for your protection. We love to fight for noble causes and to share our clients’ passion and commitment. Checkmate Strategies can also help you put new public policies into place or change old policies. With a new Administration comes new opportunities, but with a tremendous budget deficit looming ahead, we know the importance of putting a process in place now to protect your mission.
Legislative Bill Tracking, Monitoring and Communication:
During 2016, not counting special session(s), the Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature will last for 85 days. One of the utmost important items to guarantee protection is information. Checkmate Strategies will commit to giving you a weekly update on legislation impacting your Non-Profit organization. In this weekly enewsletter, we will include information on the status of legislation, how legislators voted on these bills and a schedule of when legislation of interest will be considered by the Louisiana Legislature. What you don’t know can hurt your organization.
Advocacy 101 Training:
Knowing the players is one thing. Knowing how to effectively influence their decisions is a whole other ball game. Checkmate Strategies has the ability to travel to your Association, or your conference to conduct an Advocacy 101 training seminar. This will teach your members how to influence the Louisiana Legislature. Additionally we can conduct this training electronically through a webinar.
What better way to guarantee success than having a lobbyist at the State Capitol every day looking out for you and your best interests. Checkmate Strategies offers to be on retainer to your nonprofit organization to protect your interests. With Checkmate Strategies, realize that you are investing in a team that has great personal relationships with those who directly impact the legislative process. We have advocated issues and successfully protected the interests of over 50 companies and nonprofit organizations in the last 20 years.
We would love to conduct a complimentary assessment for your nonprofit organization.
