Background: The policy environment is getting more complex and our need for crisp messages, thematic storytelling, and effective elevator speeches is getting more pronounced. This event is designed to kick start some of the frameworks for WPHCA’s new Policy and Strategy Committee. Mark your calendars now to attend! Participants will be asked to do some pre-work prior to the event.
Overall Meeting Objectives:
- Considering new ways of “advocacy”, i.e. building diverse relationships to meet your goals
- Paint a vision that is inclusive of policy/strategy committee work, advocacy leaders work, community relations, and communications/development work.
