Citizen School Workshop 1: Lobbying Effectively
March 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Faciliator: Doug McCown, PhD
Doug is a lobbyist and lobby trainer living in Portland and often working in Washington, D.C. He is also a member of Woodfords Club and donating his time to Citizen School. This free workshop is for people to learn how to lobby and advocate for causes of their choice, thus empowering them to effect change at the national and local levels with their elected officials. There is an art to effective lobbying and advocating with our representatives, and you will walk away with both strategies and finer points about how to do it both as an individual and as part of a team, or of an organization. Wi-fi will be available, so you might want to bring your laptop or smartphone, and perhaps pen and paper. There is no fee for this event – donations strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated. Citizens School is an offering of the Woodfords Club to the community.
Seating is limited to 30 participants. A second training will be provided at a later date if there is sufficient interest. RSVP at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
