Join NFIB for our first ever Advocacy Academy and DC Fly-In July 26 and 27, 2017.

A new Congress has been elected to represent you and your business, and there is no better time than now to learn how you can enhance your influence with elected officials.

NFIB's Advocacy Academy is a unique opportunity for members to get hands-on, in-depth training on how they can significantly enhance their abilities to influence lawmakers and speak to the media.

The half-day training will focus on:

  • How legislators make decisions and what influences them
  • How to develop long-term relationships with state and federal legislators and their staff
  • How to create stories to move the hearts, minds, and votes of lawmakers
  • Use of social media on Capitol Hill
  • Creating mini-grassroots networks at home
  • Demystifying the media and how to prepare for an interview

You should attend if you are interested in:

  • Becoming an activist
  • Enhancing your understanding of the legislative and political process
  • Significantly increasing your influence with lawmakers and the media
  • Advocating on behalf of your business
  • Helping NFIB fight for small business
