When it comes to educating and influencing legislators, FACTS matter, and the quality of the materials you present to legislators is key. In this webinar, Dr. Amy Rothenberg will discuss how to effectively create, compile, and share legislative materials for maximum impact and support among legislators. Dr. Rothenberg has many years of experience in meeting with and persuading legislators to support ND licensure, resulting in the passage of Chapter 400 Session Laws of 2016: An Act Establishing a Board of Registration in Naturopathy, legislation to license NDs in Massachusetts, in January 2017.
Dr. Rothenberg welcomes your questions prior to the event! Please email your questions about the webinar topic to firstname.lastname@example.org.
