Event Details

Join us for an intensive, full day institute designed to teach individuals, community groups and nonprofit organizations the nuts and bolts of advocacy in Arizona and how to lobby within the parameters of the law.

Through panel presentations and issue-specific breakout sessions, participants will learn about the mechanics of the legislature, who’s who at the Capitol and what to expect in the 2019 Arizona Legislative Session. Advocacy strategies, message framing and delivery, influencing Arizona power-brokers and how and when to collaborate for maximum impact are just some of the topics explored to help you get your voice heard by the Arizona’s legislature.

The advocacy institute will close with a networking reception with Arizona legislators.
