Policy Matters: Leveraging the Influence of Your Organization on Regulations and Rules
Monday, November 15: 10:30-12:00pm
Advocacy isn’t just building relationships with legislators, nonprofits can have important influence by offering comments about the impacts of proposed regulations, rules or policies which affect our communities and our ability to provide effective services. Taking time to offer our insights can yield important dividends. Hear from one of our region’s premier nonprofit advocates, Dave Coplan, who will share examples of when and how to engage in policy influence and stories about the successful impacts! You will also hear what the Jefferson Collaborative’s Civic Engagement team members have been meeting over the past year to advance the advocacy and policy work of the Collaborative.
