Coalition-building is a collaborative approach that brings together multiple organizations across sectors to improve the communities they represent. It is necessary to make lasting change because communities face complex issues. So, a range of perspectives must be incorporated for a solution to be accepted and sustainable.
What are some of the important issues and questions that associations need to think about and evaluate before joining and getting involved in a coalition?
Discuss, assess, and learn how to expand your government affairs reach by leaps and bounds with effective coalition building. Discover how to identify potential partners that share your vision, although they may not always be your usual allies. This session will review the essential elements of running a coalition including focus, action plans, financing and organizational best practices and tips.
This webinar will also examine other characteristics of coalitions, including:
1) The pros or positives of joining a coalition, such as strength in numbers versus the cons, such as not all issues being in alignment with those of your association;
2) Things to be aware of when managing a coalition, such as overseeing a consultant if one is hired and regularly reporting to coalition members;
3) Communicating with your association board about your association’s involvement in a coalition; and
4) Considerations for joining a coalition, such as “how your association’s list of legislative priorities matches that of the coalition’s AND what the time commitment is in terms of being actively involved in a coalition?
If a bill or issue that is important to your association depends upon building and sustaining a workable coalition, you do not want to miss this program.
