The ability to effect change with government is a fundamental role for many organizations. Establishing and maintaining a strong relationship with all levels of government can be challenging. Often this relationship is derailed as a result of a contentious issue. Establishing and maintaining an advocacy strategy keeps the organization’s efforts on track.
Many organizations conduct their advocacy efforts off the side of their desk; running from one hot-topic issue to another without a clear long-term direction in terms of what they want to accomplish.
An advocacy strategy can be more appropriately described as a long-term communication process. When done effectively, advocacy works in collaboration with decision-makers and stakeholders through the decision making process, prior to the final decision regarding an issue.
Weldon can help you create and implement a fact-based advocacy strategy that will position your organization as a leader and enhance the profile of your organization. Your strategy will consist of well researched policies and positions which reflect the mission and values of your organization. Contact Weldon today to discuss your advocacy needs.
