About the Workshops
Advocating for your organization is like buying car insurance. Insurance has to be invested in monthly or annually, with the hope that you’ll never have to use it. Relationships with local leaders should be developed over time also, not just in a last minute emergency. Learn how to become an effective advocate for your non-profit organization. Understand the difference between advocacy and lobbying, how to prepare an elevator speech, and how to connect with local and national leaders in support of your organization. Attendees will learn about tools and methods to get your messages heard, and demonstrate the impact your work has on the audience you serve. Develop economic and educational impact statements, editorial calendars, and more.

Who should attend?
Staff (paid and unpaid), volunteers, and board members of non-profit organizations.

How long is the training?
The Art of Advocacy workshops generally run about two hours.

How much does it cost?
Advocacy workshops are offered for free thanks to sponsorship from the State Historical Society of North Dakota and each local host location.

Who is the presenter?
Advocacy workshops are facilitated by Danielle Stuckle, outreach coordinator at the State Historical Society of North Dakota.

How do I arrange to host a workshop?
Local hosts are asked to provide meeting space and some refreshments. To request a workshop in your community, contact Outreach Coordinator, Danielle Stuckle at or 701-328-2794.
