Advocacy Training Available to Non Profits and Businesses

Posted By Cindy Bishop, Checkmate Strategies, Monday, October 03, 2016



Knowing that there is a tremendous need among nonprofit organizations and Louisiana businesses to create and sustain effective, impactful advocacy programs, Checkmate Strategies is now offering advocacy training.  Imagine how the influence your nonprofit or business could have, if you provided your members or your board leadership with customized 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.  We all know it is better to be pro-active rather than reactive. Checkmate Strategies will tailor a half day (3-5 hours) or a full day program, with special rates for LSAE members.  We can also tailor a program for your specific needs


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 or Business

How to Use PACS Effectively



Checkmate Strategies has a long and  rich history of advocating on behalf of non-profit organizations. We have represented such high profile issues as the Smoke Free Air Act, the Primary Seat Belt Law, the Child Passenger Safety Act, the Concealed Carry Bill and we were successful in changing public policy on each of these legislative campaigns. 

Cindy is a veteran of Louisiana politics with over two decades of experience. Earl Willis is equally passionate about helping nonprofit organizations and businesses to thrive and excel.  


Call today to schedule an advocacy training with Checkmate Strategies.
