This session will feature some real-world training about how lobbying works and the keys to effective advocacy. In addition, lobbying meetings (both good and bad) will be role-played to give attendees a feel for the sorts of issues that come up and how best to advance the cause. This session seeks to aid IT professionals in understanding how their federal relations officers work and the best ways CIOs can assist in making that advocacy successful.
