Preparing for Legislative Session

August 30: Preparing for Legislative Session - Are You Ready?
With the 2018 legislative session rapidly approaching, now is the time to be engaged with our advocacy efforts to defend local decision-making. Join us as we explore the main policy issues adopted at the FL Conference. We will also discuss key advocacy actions to take now to ensure the League and your city is prepared when session starts.

The Partisan Divide

September 14: The Partisan Divide (and How to Bridge It)
We hear all the time that we are sharply divided along partisan lines as a state and a nation. Join Dr. Scott Paine as we explore this division, what drives it, and how municipal leaders can bridge across the divide.

This session is part of a monthly forum on hot topics in ethics, public opinion and leadership. 

Grassroots Advocacy

September 19: Engaging the Community - Grassroots Advocacy
Planning a successful advocacy campaign in your local community is dependent upon engaging the right individuals. It is often easy to find those passionate about the cause, but how do you turn that passion into action and action into votes? Join Beth Rawlins, tenacious problem solver and seasoned local campaign consultant, as we break down the do’s and don’t to grassroots advocacy.

Strengthening Relationships with the Media

September 28: Strengthening Relationships with the Media
Having a productive relationship with your local media outlets is one of the best tools a city official can use to help advocate the League’s legislative agenda. However, you cannot expect that relationship to be productive or even positive if you have not spent time developing it. Join our team of PR experts for essential strategies on how to establish a positive working relationship with your local media.
