Lobbying 101

Now that the election is over, how do you get the government and elected officials who represent you to pay attention to you? The Nevada Women’s Lobby has just the thing. (Full disclosure, I’m on the Southern Steering Committee.)

LAS VEGAS The Nevada Women’s Lobby is hosting Lobbying 101, a great primer to learn the lobbying ropes. The 20-year-old statewide organization is offering this one-day workshop on Nov. 15 to the public free of charge.

At Lobbying 101 participants will learn the basics of lobbying, including understanding which governmental body to lobby regarding specific issues and the best methods to influence elected officials. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to meet some elected officials and a panel of lobbyists.

Some confirmed elected officials include State Sen. Joyce Woodhouse, Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly and Las Vegas City Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian.

Local journalist Jon Ralston, host of Face to Face with Jon Ralston, is moderating a panel.

The free event starts at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 15 and will be held at the Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway. To RSVP, send e-mails to nvwl@aol.com.

Founded in 1988, the Nevada Women’s Lobby was created to promote equity for women and children. The statewide 501(c)4 organization specifically works on issues related to health care, education and reproductive choice, among others.
