Engaging with the government
Time & Location
Now more than ever is the time to reach out to the government, but what are the best ways to get heard and have meaningful conversations? Learn tips and tricks in this webinar.
Government relations matters! Not only during election season or when there are hot button issues that are important to you, but all the time! Building a relationship with government officials, whether they be elected officials, political staff or bureaucratic representatives and employees, helps build better ties and foster long-term engagement. Then, when important issues do arise, you already have an established relationship that you can use.
You know your influence and how important you are in the community, you simply need to communicate that message to the government. By dedicating time to government relations, you will help build capacity, demand accountability and allow organizations to convene, network and rally around important issues.
