Updated Advocacy Tools Help Strengthen Extension's Efforts

| Leave a comment

In March, the Government and Constituent Relations section on the Extension employee website was extensively updated to better serve Extension administrators, educators and staff who work in advocacy roles for federal, state and local government relations. 

On the section, you will find tools on general advocacy; guidelines for meeting with elected representatives; information on how to reinforce Extension's important value to the state; and resources for effective advocacy at the national, state and local level.
It is important that all Extension staff continue to support and advocate for Extension and the University.  To help us maintain a collective advocacy effort within Extension, remember to follow our government relations guidelines:

- If you have been formally invited to testify at a legislative hearing you need prior approval.
Send the following information to Sarah Greening: committee, agenda topic, date and time

Contact Gwen Gmeinder or Sarah Greening with questions, comments or additional suggestions for how to improve the government relations section of the website.
