Advocacy and Influence: Tools and Tips

NALP recognizes the importance of not only engaging our members in the advocacy process, but also to provide resources that help you understand what it takes to be an effective advocate. It’s not difficult, but there are definitely some common sense tips that will best position you for success! We are in the process of developing comprehensive training materials including videos, and an online effective advocacy toolkit. This year, we have already conducted an effective advocacy webinar, developed a document on effective advocacy tips, and created a list of “do’s and don’ts” for members to follow when meeting with elected officials in DC, at the state level, or in their hometown. This page will serve as a compendium of our NALP effective advocacy tools and additional materials will be added as soon as they become available. We hope you find these new resources of use, and please let us know if you have any additional suggestions!
