Take Your Advocacy Skills One Step Further with Advocacy Training 201
July 14, 2021
If you’ve attended one or more of NWCUA’s advocacy trainings, chances are you’re a storytelling rock star who knows how to effectively articulate the Credit Union Difference to lawmakers. Maybe you’ve attended several major advocacy events, such as Credit Union Day at the Capitol or Hike the Hill.
Now, it’s time to take things up a notch.
Advocacy Training 201 is designed to help seasoned and deeply engaged credit union champions turn their previous advocacy training experience into practical legislative outreach. The comprehensive virtual workshop, taking place Aug. 19, from 9 a.m. to noon PDT (10 a.m. – 1 p.m. MDT), will explore the role advocates play as key contacts and focus on building relationships with assigned elected officials and policymakers.
You’ll discuss the difference between grasstops and grassroots advocacy, gain a better understanding of legislative processes and outcomes, learn how to establish internal credit union advocacy committees, and much more.
“We are excited to introduce this advanced training program to engage credit union advocates who have been involved in a variety of advocacy efforts and are ready to take it to the next level,” said Jordan Beyer, Grassroots Advocacy Manager. “This training is about making practical inroads with elected officials and building lasting relationships that allow advocates to influence policy-making within the Credit Union Movement for years to come.”
