Are you getting ready to lobby an elected official for the first time? Need to brush up on your skills? No sweat! This virtual training session will walk you through the basics of lobbying — what to expect, how to prepare, and why you shouldn’t feel nervous about speaking to elected leaders who answer to YOU.
This training is geared towards people who plan to attend the Grassroots WV lobby day on February 3, 2020. But it will help you with skills you can use in lots of different situations — whether you’re talking to elected leaders in your city council, school board, state legislature or Congress. Even if you can’t make it to the lobby day in February, or if you’re planning to come to a different lobby day, you can still come to the training.
