Lobbying Workshop

Gear up for conversations with local elected officials and for the 2018 General Assembly by attending this workshop about talking with legislators. We will discuss how to set an agenda for a lobby meeting, the various roles of participants in lobby meetings, and some of the major pitfalls that prevent us from having productive conversations with legislators (or with anyone, for that matter). Attendees will have the chance to practice their lobbying skills and get an overview of KFTC's issue areas, or an opportunity to discuss local issues, through break-out groups. Before wrapping up, we will plan next steps for which legislators or local officials we might meet with, when, and where so that we have plans to put these skills to use in the new year.
