Lobbying 201: Understanding the 'What', 'Where', 'How' and 'Why' of Government    Thu Oct 19 to Thu Oct 26, 2023, Online

Dates: October 19, 24 and 26, 2023

This series of workshops is for those who have at least some experience with government relations, and want to learn more. The format will be somewhat interactive, with opportunities for Q&A and discussion of specific examples. The focus will be on the federal government, although the principles apply at the provincial level, and to some degree, the municipal.

This will be an online series, divided into three sessions:

Session 1: The Room Where It Happens, October 19 from 1-2 PM ET

This session will review the five parts of government where policy decisions are generally made, addressing questions such as: Who are the key decision-makers? What are the concentric circles around those who have influence on the decision? How do the various parts of government interact with one another?

Session 2: Think Like Government, October 24 from 1-2 PM ET

How does the government perceive your organization and your issue? What are the values and priorities that drive policy decisions? What does the process look like within government? What are the most effective ways to communicate with government?

Session 3: Venues, Strategies & Tactics, October 26 from 1-2 PM ET

Where in government can advocates make the most difference? What are the most effective strategies? What are the three venues where MPs can help advance your issue? How does media and grassroots engagement influence government?

Registration is $90 for the series and the sessions will be hosted through Zoom Meetings. Please note, all participants will receive a confirmation email from TicketTailor with a link to join the meetings in Zoom.

All registrants will be provided with a link and password for the recording and the presentation slides following each session. The recordings will be available for 60 days.
