WEBCAST: Friends in High Places: Why Your Success Depends on Government Relations
December 8, 2014
Each of us gives a tremendous amount of effort and thought towards nurturing and growing relationships with donors, colleagues and stakeholders. Yet few understand how equally important it is to have government relations knowledge and contacts.
Because public policy can have a huge impact on fundraising success, Mackenzie Investments and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy-Canada have sponsored a free webinar, “Friends In High Places: Why Your Success Depends on Government Relations.” The webinar is designed to help members become more comfortable with government relations and will introduce the wide variety of AFP’s public policy resources, including a recently completed toolkit. With presenters Ken Mayhew, Brad Offman and Caroline Riseboro, members can expect a humour-filled session focused on AFP’s past successes, current sector partnerships and upcoming issues.
After viewing this webcast, members will be better equipped to respond the questions AFP gets on CRA cost of fundraising guidance, regulated compensation, anti-spam legislation and more. Some of key learning objectives from the webinar include:
- Why you and your organization need to be involved in GR
- How to make your organization GR ready
- How to get a meeting with a municipal, provincial or federal politician
- How to conduct and structure a meeting with a politician
- Perspectives from past AFP GR successes
- Current sector issues and partnerships
