    Nonprofit organizations are uniquely situated to shape both public opinion and public policy. In this workshop, we will teach you many of the rules that govern nonprofit advocacy-including lobbying activities. We will also focus on how you can develop the knowledge, skills, and resources that will help you advance your organization's mission. 

    During this session we will cover the following:  
    • Introduction to advocacy
    • Training and tools to help your board, staff, and volunteers be effective everyday advocates
    • Guidelines on lobbying-the attempt to influence legislation-including IRS requirements and the                  501(h) election 
    • Special issues to consider regarding the legislative process, election season, and political                          candidates

    This session is a collaboration between the Community Foundation, Larned A. Waterman Iowa Nonprofit Resource Center, Mid-Iowa Health Foundation and United Way of Central Iowa.
