Virtual Workshop: Proving the Value of State Government Relations

14 Jul, 2020

July 14, 2021
2 − 4:15 p.m. ET
Virtual

As every state government relations professional knows, states are often where policy change happens first. One state’s legislation can quickly inspire other states to follow suite, creating even larger impacts across the country. Join us to learn how to demonstrate the importance of state government relations to your corporate and association leadership.

Agenda

2:00 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.   Showing Value: Internal Stakeholders

Making sure internal stakeholders – including your C-Suite – understand your SGR work and value is essential to have the budget, tools and resources you need. However, tracking and measuring the value of your efforts is one of the greatest challenges facing any SGR professional. And measuring is only half of the equation: you also need to communicate your value in terms that are meaningful to your internal stakeholders. In this session, our experts will help you tackle these challenges by sharing ways to:

  • Track and measure your state government efforts in words and numbers
  • Calculate the ROI of your state-level activities
  • Show the value of SGR to the bottom line during COVID-19 and beyond
  • Communicate value to internal stakeholders and business units using effective language and visuals

3:30 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.   Showing Value: External Stakeholders

External stakeholders also play an essential role in effective state government relations work. Often the key to success lies in participating in associations, state-level groups or coalitions, as well as building good relationships with clients, customers and policymakers. In this session, our experts will cover ways to demonstrate the value of investing in external relationships to your leadership, as well as sharing tips for communicating your value directly to external stakeholders.

  • Tips for calculating the ROI of membership in state-level groups, associations, or coalitions
  • Explaining your work and its impact to external stakeholders that may not fully grasp the importance of state work
  • Ways to demonstrate your value to external stakeholder using visuals, social media, and other communication tools
