The Professional Women in Advocacy Conference this week announced the theme for the 2016 conference is “Election Wrap-Up.” The conference will be held on November 10th in Washington, DC and will focus on the November elections, their impact on advocates and the causes they represent and the challenges and opportunities of working with our newly elected leaders.
“The outcome of the 2016 Presidential election will be historic and will have profound effects on advocates and the causes they represent. There is no better place than The National Press Club to unpack the impacts of the November elections and strategize on how to get things done in a new era.” said conference CEO LeeAnn Petersen.
This year’s conference is one day only and features a jam-packed agenda with five (5) general sessions and three (3) breakouts. Sessions and speakers will be announced soon. The conference will once again be followed by the Excellence in Advocacy Awards which gives visibility to advocates and the causes they represent. At just $425, the registration for the 2016 PWIA Conference is an incredible value and will leave advocates with ideas, tools and contacts that will serve them throughout their career.
Professional Women in Advocacy (PWIA) believes that when women are involved at the highest levels of policy making, everyone benefits. In order to get and keep our seat at the public policy table, 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. This conference is perfect for women (and men) working 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.
