Our Professional Development Workshop Series is made possible by the generous support of U.S. Bank:

This year, Congress will make important decisions regarding funding for nonprofit organizations, incentives for charitable giving, and other policies affecting the nonprofit sector. Is your organization prepared to speak up on the issues that matter?

This training will cover effective tactics for building relationships with Congressional offices and communicating about policies that affect your organization or the nonprofit sector.
