Have you ever wondered what it takes to get a bill passed during the Legislative Session? Are you curious on how to analyze polling data and translate it into a campaign? What exactly is a lobbyist?

PRSA looks to take you in-depth in how advocacy and public affairs communications interact with policy to change laws and make a difference with combination of the 1st Amendment. Join us on February 7th, for all-day workshop on how advocacy works and communication strategies you can use to interact with policy changes in the state. 

Can't stay all day, join us for our Chapter Monthly Program Meeting for a panel discussion, Lobbyists: What you think we do vs What we do: Busting the Myths, beginning at 11:30 am in the Governor's Press Conference Room.
