Whether you call it a fly-in, advocacy or hill day or legislative conference, your event — if leveraged effectively — can be eye-opening to your advocates. It shows them the impact of their work and also helps develop lasting relationships with their legislators.

So just how do top organizations plan and manage their fly-ins, keep them growing and leave a positive lasting impression on both internal and external stakeholders?

At this session, hear from best-in-class practitioners on key topics, such as:

  • Structures of successful fly-ins: Logistical concerns, scheduling, who to invite, leave-behinds, etc.
  • Strategies for training your advocates to best prepare them to have great stories to share
  • Developing a strong message for your advocates to share and how to make a positive impression with legislators and legislative staff
  • Using your fly-in as a springboard for other advocacy and political activities, including integrating your PAC, promoting in-district advocacy and getting buy-in for your program
