NEBRASKA - GRASSROOTS ADVOCACY WORKSHOP

Nebraska’s Grassroots Advocacy Workshop is a two-day workshop focused on strengthening the attendee’s advocacy skills. All members were invited to attend especially local presidents and board members. The first part of the program was dedicated to giving the attendees a state, national and industry update. The second part of the program focused on building their advocacy skills. This included social media strategies and why it is important to be active on social media, how to interact with elected officials, and writing an op-ed in a local paper.
