ADEA’s Advocacy and Governmental Relations portfolio (AGR) is offering its ADEA Advocacy Workshop series to ADEA members. AGR’s staff of advocacy professionals (who have worked in state legislatures and the Congress) will travel to your institution to present information on how to become an effective advocate for academic dentistry and dental and craniofacial research.

The AGR team will provide workshop attendees with the skills and tactics to help them successfully gain the support of elected officials on the state or federal level. The material is suitable for faculty, staff and students.

AGR staff can work with participating institutions to customize an agenda that best reflects the priorities and goals of a school. The length of a workshop can vary from an extended lunch hour (about two hours) to either a half or full day and includes the participation of both local and state elected officials, as well as leaders of the region’s professional and dental societies.

To learn more or to request an ADEA Advocacy Workshop, please contact Daniel Nugent, J.D., ADEA Director for Outreach and Advocacy at NugentD@adea.org.
