How to Lobby 101

Sunday, Apr 17, 2016, 4:00 pm

This interactive session is designed to help new lobbyists prepare an effective meeting for their upcoming trip to the Hill. Beginners will come to understand the ins-and-outs of running impactful lobby visits as we explain all of the necessary steps in the lobbying process. Newcomers will also learn about the “secret ingredient” of lobbying—personal stories—that has been key in NETWORK’s lobbying successes. The session will also include space to practice lobbying with fellow participants. Participants will leave with the confidence and knowledge to conduct strategic visits both on Capitol Hill and in-district on issues about which they are passionate.
