PWSA | USA is excited to bring you this Virtual Roundtable and Panel Discussion on Effective Communication with Elected Officials and Stakeholders. The ability to work with elected officials and stakeholders is one of the most important skills that advocates must employ. Join us on July 25th to hear directly from elected officials and their staff, and explore some of the basic dos and don’ts when engaging with your elected officials. See below for a list of questions our panelists will be addressing:

  • What made you decide to run for office?
  • How do you prefer your constituents contact you? Why?
  • What are some common misconceptions people have about elected officials and how can we combat these misconceptions to communicate more effectively?
  • What is the best/most effective way to engage with an elected official on social media?
  • Is your staff important and how should we engage with staff?
  • What is the number one way we, as constituents and advocates, can make a substantial difference in our communities?
  • What is one piece of practical advice you would give to someone who is reaching out to their elected official for the first time?
