Recording: Virtual Hill Days: What Works, What Doesn’t, and What’s Next?
Faced with pandemic restrictions and Capitol security measures, associations have had to dramatically change how they manage their lobby days, and some of these changes are here to stay. Fortunately, a “Dial-in Fly-in” can be as or more effective than having your advocates trudge around Capitol Hill.
This free mini workshop, offered by The Advocacy Association, the Congressional Management Foundation and Advocacy Associates, is designed to help you take full advantage of the best (and avoid the worst) of what virtual hill days have to offer. Our association, private sector, and Capitol Hill panelists will provide insights into best practices, current trends, and the tactics you’ll need to execute effective events for the remainder of 2021—and beyond.
Are Earmarks Making A Comeback?
As Washington returns to normal, earmarks are becoming one of the most talked about tools to get Congress to work together again. After a long ban on earmarks, congressional members on both sides of the aisle are starting to support local projects as part of the appropriations process and advocacy professionals are hungry to know what this means for their constituents. Join The Advocacy Association and the Graduate School of Political Management at The George Washington University to hear from legislative affairs expert Dr. Casey Burgat. He will cover the latest insights on how earmarks could be reformed and how advocacy practitioners can prepare for this new tool in advocacy.
