Welcome to the Campaign Method for More Effective State Government Affairs, a methodology proven to jumpstart novices, sharpen veterans, and produce effective and successful lobbying of state lawmakers, staff, regulatory agencies, special interests, and the governor’s office.
Good lobbying is about making it easier for a lawmaker to say “yes” to you and harder for him or her to say “no.” But making practical this conceptually simple idea requires more than writing and visiting lawmakers. It demands skillfully navigating parties, politics, processes, and psyches – friends and foes. And that’s what our books, videos, and workshops – public and private, standard and custom – train you to do.
