In a time of increased layoffs, budget cuts, unfunded mandates, and decreasing resources it remains essential for institutions to find ways to offer new services, answer increasing demands, renovate facilities, sponsor legislation, create new partnerships, and attract new funding.
Advocacy for Leaders will present techniques that you can use to improve the success of your institution. Join our conversation with a nationally recognized slate of speakers as they discuss their successes and challenges, including their tips and tricks of the trade.
Learn how they harness their passion and create successful advocacy strategies that result in advancing the interests of their organizations.
