Knowing that there is a tremendous need among nonprofit organizations to create and sustain effective, impactful advocacy programs, Checkmate Strategies is now offering advocacy training to non-profit organizations at their locale. Imagine how the influence your nonprofit could have, if all of your members had one on one training on how to impact public policy!
The 2017 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature will be here before we know it and now is the perfect time to begin planning a successful legislative campaign. Along with that, this is a Federal Election Year! With that comes one of the greatest opportunities you have, to be PROACTIVE rather than REACTIVE.
Checkmate Strategies will tailor a half day (3-5 hours) or a full day program, especially for LANO members. The following components will be covered in the Advocacy Training Session:
The Importance of Knowing the Players and the Process
Who are the Players?
Overview of the Legislative Process
The Importance of Knowing Your Organizations “Why”
How to Weave Impactful Stories into your Advocacy Message
The Role of Regulatory Agencies and How they Impact Your Non-Profit
How to Use PACs Effectively
