In the webinar, you’ll find out about

  • ways to develop your case
  • identifying targets

This webinar is designed for science center and museum professionals, at any level of an organization, who are curious about about advocacy. Although the focus is on the U.S. political system, many of the concepts are applicable in other countries.



Registration will include a link to an archived recording of the webinar, so even if the live event doesn’t fit your schedule, you will receive access to its recording, which your and your colleagues can watch when you wish.
