Volunteer Alberta, CCVO, & ECVO present – Magnify your Impact: Government Relations Webinar

Thursday May 21 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm MST
$15 Members / $30 Non-Members

Have you ever wondered about how your organization can engage in government relations, advocacy, or policy work? Did you know that it can Magnify Your Impact?

We recently asked public policy experts about WHY nonprofits engaging in advocacy is important. They explained why and how we, as nonprofits, can magnify our impact by engaging in advocacy.

Check out the brief video, share it with others and Magnify Your Impact.

VA and CCVO are collaborating in cooperation with ECVO to present an advocacy webinar and workshop series. This series will prepare nonprofits to be ready, engage with government officials and build those important relationships.

Government Relations 101 – Webinar

Join Kim Mustard, Principal of Fresh Angle Consulting, for a 1.5 hour webinar on engaging in government relations, advocacy and policy work. In session you will learn:

  • Why organizations should engage in government relations
  • The difference between government relations, lobbying and advocacy
