Engineering Public Policy: Civic Campaigns

John Denny Wednesday, Dec. 11
9 a.m. – noon

Instructor: John Denny, Denny Civic Solutions
Fee: $65 ($55 if paid online)

Instead of politicians asking us to vote for them, learn how a civic campaign can successfully ask a politician to vote for us – or a piece of legislation/policy that would help improve the lives of our clients, communities, or industry sector. This course will walk you through the various steps of developing a civic campaign strategy, how to go about implementing the strategy and use a real case study as an example of a successful and not so successful civic campaign.
