Special Legislative Intensive for Print Buyers and Printers
This special training session will teach the participants how to educate policy makers on the importance of the legislative issues that affect print buying companies and printers. The printing industry is the lynch pin of the American economy. The printing industry and its employees impact the livelihood of truckers, postal workers, lumberjacks, equipment manufacturers, paper millers, and countless others across the American economic and industrial landscape. In turn, those touched by a downturn in the printing industry affect countless other industries and the people, unions, and businesses associated with them.
Policymakers in Washington need to understand that their assistance to and support of print grows the American economy, lowers unemployment, and advances environmental sustainability. The promotion of our industry by policymakers in Washington is key to the American economic recovery, and therefore to the improvement of the global economy.
In this session, participants will be provided with the tools to craft and deliver their message effectively to policy makers. They will learn:
· How to see Members of Congress and Congressional Staff
· How to speak to Members of Congress and Congressional Staff
· How to get Members of Congress and Congressional Staff to hear what you say
· How to ensure your issues become part of your Representative’s agenda
· The tools you need to shift or enforce the positions of elected officials such as writing letters to the editor, op-eds, editorials and speeches; participating in town hall meetings; hosting dinners and attending benefits
Regardless of your level of political expertise, this rapid fire session will provide you with the tricks of the trade known only to Washington’s top lobbyists and government relations experts.
Led by some of Washington’s top experts in legislative affairs and policy making, this Special Legislative Intensive will train you on how to develop an “ask”, present your case, and get what you want from elected public officials.
Normally this type of knowledge takes years to accumulate but you will be provided with the shortcuts to translate your goals into the language of elected officials. The lucky few who participate in this session will be given the keys to unlock legislative success in the nation’s capitol, in state capitols, and in city councils.
Sign up today for this exclusive session and you will learn how to deliver unique value to your company and how to guarantee your goals are achieved in Washington.
Meetings on Capitol Hill – Pitching to Members of Congress and their Staff*
The rules of politics in the United States have drastically changed and there has been a dynamic shift in policymaking in recent history. Now the American power center is not only based in Washington it is also in the living rooms of small town citizens all across America.
Print buyers and printers must be aware of this shift in policymaking and you must understand how it affects your interests. Work the Hill – Pitching to Members of Congress and their Staff allows you to take the tools you learned in the Special Legislative Intensive directly to Capitol Hill. Nobel Peace Prize nominee Joseph K. Grieboski, Chairman and CEO of just consulting, will serve as your guide to a behind the scenes look at how Washington works – and how to work Washington.
After a brief orientation of the Hill, you will have the opportunity to utilize the skills you have acquired in the training session to advance both your general interests and specific legislative issues affecting the print industry.
By meeting with Members of Congress and/or their staffs, you will have the opportunity to communicate your company’s biggest priorities directly to the people who make policy in Washington. In this way you are not only helping your company but also your community.
* This opportunity is free for participants who sign up for the Special Legislative Intensive.
