Non-Profit Advocacy Workshops to be Held

BISMARCK – The State Historical Society of North Dakota (SHSND) will be offering free workshops for non-profit organizations this fall. “The Art of Advocacy” workshops will allow an organization’s staff, board members, and volunteers to better understand how to advocate for and promote their organizations to local leaders and the communities they serve.

Presenter Danielle Stuckle, outreach coordinator for the SHSND, will also discuss the differences between advocacy and lobbying, how to prepare an elevator speech, and how to connect with local and national leaders in support of an organization. Attendees will learn about tools and methods to get their messages heard and be able to demonstrate the impact their work has on the audience they serve.
