December 13, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


CO+HOOTS Foundation presents How to Make Friends and Influence People. Stop Worrying. Love Lobbying.

Lobbying is a dirty word for some, but we believe that if you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu. It’s our business to translate the mission, vision, and work of our clients into something that policymakers at every level of government can understand and relate to. Come hear a few of our experiences and learn how you can secure your seat at the proverbial table.
