PWIA Annual Conference

Professional Women in Advocacy (PWIA) presents...

PWIA hosts a national conference to provide professional development and leadership training to women in all areas of advocacy including federal, state and local government relations, public affairs, community relations, public policy, legislation, Congressional relations, community activism, political engagement and campaigns. Attendees will hear from successful lobbyists and communicators, elected officials, professional staff, industry experts, and public policy specialists on a wide variety of how-to topics relevant to legislative and regulatory advocacy.

Goals of the Conference

When women have a seat at the public policy table, everyone benefits. In order to get and keep our seat, we must be equipped to competently and confidently represent our viewpoint. The goal of this conference is to provide women in advocacy the information, tools and contacts they need to be successful representatives for their organization or cause. We achieve this by hosting substantive policy discussions, teaching the latest methods and strategies in advocacy and filling the room with network contacts that help attendees do their job at the highest possible level.

Learning Objectives

• Advocacy and Outreach: Learn tips and techniques to immediately improve your effectiveness in advocacy, communications and political engagement.

• Federal, State and Local Government Relations: Polish up on traditional shoe leather lobbying techniques while learning the latest trends in government relations from K Street to Main Street.
