Effective government relations can help you advance your mission, influence public policy, and increase revenue. From advising government of the ways in which community services can be more efficiently delivered, to sharing the data that can be used in the development of public policy, this webinar was designed to illustrate both the value and significant returns for nonprofits who engage in government relations.

Regardless of your ask (funding, policy), government relations is about establishing relationships with elected and un-elected government officials, and educating them about the role your nonprofit can play in helping the government meet its policy objectives. Learn more in this webinar.
