This year, perhaps more than any other in recent memory, promises to bring big changes to both federal and state government. What can nonprofits expect and how do we join together to advocate for our sector and the people we serve?
Find out at our Third Annual Policy Institute: Critical Partnerships for West Virginia’s Future, in Charleston, presented by the West Virginia Nonprofit Association and Philanthropy WV. The Institute is designed to support and engage foundation and nonprofit staff members, board members, volunteers, and supporters in the legislative process. Whether you’re a public policy beginner or an advocacy expert, this program is geared to anyone with a desire to advocate for public policy issues that are of concern to your nonprofit, foundation, and community. This year’s agenda includes:
- Featured keynote “What Do Changes in Washington Mean for West Virginia Nonprofits and Foundations?” from David Thompson, VP of Public Policy for the National Council of Nonprofits.
- Breakout sessions: Using Data to Tell Your Story, Advocacy and Lobbying 101, and Debriefing Successful Advocacy Efforts.
- Networking lunches grouped by policy issue.
- Panel discussion including leaders from the WV Senate, WV House of Delegates, and the Governor’s administration.
