Join SNA and the Congressional Management Foundation (CMF) to hone messaging strategies and prepare you for a successful 2021 Legislative Action Conference (LAC) and advocacy filled year! This presentation will explain how the best citizen advocates research their Members of Congress; use their Members’ profiles to adjust their communications; and connect the dots between SNA’s 2021 Position Paper and your Congressional representatives influence.
