WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Do your board members understand how advocacy can strengthen your organization?

Over the past decade, the public policy and nonprofit arenas are becoming more intertwined and the decisions made by lawmakers in state capitols and DC profoundly impact the nonprofit sector.

This also means that nonprofit organizations - and their boards - play an increasingly critical role in these policy debates.
