Join the Public Affairs Association of Canada (Ontario Chapter) on Friday, April 23 from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm for our upcoming event on Creating effective lobby days in a virtual environment. From 12:00 pm to 12:30 pm join us for virtual networking (optional).
Throughout the pandemic, government relations efforts have been affected by the lack of face-to-face meetings with elected officials and their staff. Businesses, associations and other groups have been forced to adapt their tactics to adjust to the virtual world.
As we embark on a second year without in-person lobby days at the Legislature, how do public affairs professionals go about creating effective lobby days in a virtual environment? What are the best practices to secure meetings and hold engaging discussions with policymakers that incite change?
Crestview Strategy will be providing a presentation on tools & tactics of hosting virtual lobby days. Following the presentation, we are pleased to welcome a panel of MPPs from Queen’s Park to share their insights on how to (and not to) approach their offices in a virtual environment.
