Advocacy Training Available to Non Profit Organizations

Posted By Cindy Bishop, Checkmate Strategies, Wednesday, November 9, 2016



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 an Election Year at the federal level! 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:

ü  The Importance of Knowing the Players and the Process

ü  Who are the Players?

ü  Overview of the Legislative Process

ü  The Importance of Knowing Your Organizations “Why”

ü  How to Weave Impactful  Stories into your Advocacy Message

ü  The Role of Regulatory Agencies and How they Impact Your Non-Profit

ü  How to Use PACS Effectively


However, we can tailor the program to your Association’s needs.

Checkmate Strategies has a long and  rich history of advocating on behalf of non-profit organizations.  High profile bills such as the Smoke Free Air Act, the Primary Seat Belt Law, the Concealed Carry Bill, are all measures that were by battled by Cindy Bishop and her team.

Cindy is a veteran of Louisiana politics, with over two decades of experience in state and national advocacy campaigns and Michael Willis, is equally passionate about helping nonprofit organizations to thrive and excel.  We are excited about the opportunity to help non-profits through advocacy training.
