Massachusetts Association for Community Action (MASSCAP) 

Supporting Programs and Communities Through Effective Advocacy and Persuasion

Target Audience: Executive Directors, managers, planners, communications/development/fundraising/public relations staff

Cost: $75 for staff of Community Action Agencies; $85 for staff of non-CAA organizations 

Whether in a board room or on Beacon Hill, effective persuasion is a hallmark of good leaders. Drawing from the experiences of a lobbyist with over 20 years of experience lobbying for the nonprofit sector and using case studies, hands on exercises, and discussion, we will explore the principles of effective advocacy and persuasion designed to help you navigate and succeed in various venues of the nonprofit world. Participants will learn skills that will cover a range of settings: from navigating everyday “water cooler” office politics to gaining the tools necessary to influence policy makers that can mean the difference between receiving state funding and going away empty handed.
