"So You Think You Want To Sponsor A Bill": This seminar guides you through getting the answers to the important questions: Is legislation the right approach? If you decide that legislation is the right approach, does your organization have the human and financial resources that the task demands? Are you aware of all that getting your bill passed will require? We will cover every aspect of the process, from that first spark of an idea, through how you handle the ultimate outcome. If you or your organization are considering sponsoring a bill, this seminar is a must! 

Budget Advocacy: This seminar covers the most important fundamentals of budget advocacy and enables you to maximize your chances of success in that seemingly arcane world. The budget process can be overwhelming. By taking Budget Advocacy, you will no longer be fearful to engage in this field of advocacy and you will be prepared to succeed.
