About the National Grassroots Conference
The Public Affairs Council’s National Grassroots Conference is the largest gathering of grassroots, communications and digital advocacy professionals in the country. We bring together practitioners, experts and consultants to discuss emerging trends, fundamentals and advanced strategies to move advocacy initiatives forward. Key to this conference are the strong community-building and networking opportunities that practitioners and consultants have to gain new insights and inspiration and to establish new connections.

The Conference will take place January 25–28, 2016, at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando, Fla. We will be conveniently located near CityWalk, which features dozens of restaurants and stores as well as the entrance to Universal Studios.


Nearly 300 participants attended in 2015, with representatives from Fortune 500 companies, trade associations, professional societies and large advocacy organizations.
