Event description


PWIA Atlanta Workshop

September 19, 2018

Draft Agenda

Professional Women in Advocacy is based in Washington, D.C. where for the last 5 years we have hosted an annual conference to provide professional development programming to women working in government relations, public affairs and activism. Due to popular demand PWIA has started hosting regional one day workshops. We are planning our second one in Atlanta, GA on September 19th, 2018 and we would love to see you there!

9:00am Registration and Coffee - Come early and network with friends and colleagues

9:30am Opening Remarks: Women Count!

Will 2018 be the year of the woman at the ballot box? How more women voting, engaging, advocating, running, and governing will improve policy outcomes for all. Speaker: LeeAnn Petersen, CEO, PWIA Conference

10:00am Communications for Advocacy – Crafting and Delivering a Message that Resonates

Receive tips from experts on how to frame your message so people act, react and engage with your information. Learn how audiences consume information and which traditional and new media platforms work best for advocacy.

11:00am Lobbying Compliance – The Rules Have Changed - Are You Keeping Up?

These days it seems like everyone is an advocate - but who should register, when and what are the triggers? Refresh your understanding of federal, state and local lobbying and campaign finance laws to avoid pitfalls and stay out of trouble.
