Engaging Elected Officials to Promote Volunteerism

Like Comment

In this AL!VE Academy webinar, we discuss how to effectively engage Members of Congress and other elected officials to understand and support the voluntary sector and the important impact of volunteerism. Whether you’re planning a trip to Capitol Hill in Washington, DC or developing a strategy for meeting with Congressional District Offices back home, this webinar will teach you how to schedule appointments and meet with legislators, make your case effectively, build long-lasting relationships, and develop appropriate and compelling “asks” to gain critical support from your elected officials to do your work better. We’ll also review current legislation and policy priorities related to national and community service initiatives, such as AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the Volunteer Generation Fund.
