Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day- Nonprofit Board Training Opportunity

Leave a comment

Temple Beth Am members will be attending Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day.  This is a wonderful opportunity for nonprofit board members to attend a free Pre-Advocacy Day Training webinar.  More details about TBA’s participating will be coming soon.

Have you heard? Registration is now open!
Join with hundreds of your fellow advocates, including nonprofit board members from all corners of the state for Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day on Monday, February 11.
Board members of nonprofit organizations have unique ties to the issues we all care about. Board members are community members, small business owners, educators, and individuals who have experienced homelessness. Each cares about increasing affordable housing and ending homelessness in our state, and each has a lot of advocacy power as a board member.

The 2013 legislative session is going to be a challenging one. With many newly elected lawmakers across the state and a new governor in office, it’s more important than ever that we work together to advocate for the issues and programs we care about. One of the ways board members can do this is by attending Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day next month.

You can also now register to reserve your spot for a web-based pre-Advocacy Day training on either Tuesday, January 15 at 11am or Thursday, January 17 at 11am. These live, online advocacy trainings will help to prepare you for Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day and for meeting your elected officials. Space is limited, so please register in advance.

Interested in hosting a training for your organization’s board of directors on site? Contact Sakara at the Housing Alliance. Training for board members will include:

Training Agenda

  • Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day overview
  • Messaging our legislative priorities

Pre-Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day Training for Board Members

Tuesday, January 15 or Thursday, January 17*

The training will be a webinar, and the call-in information will be sent to your email after you register.

Happy New Year!

The Board Advocacy Project has created a framework to give board members the training and ongoing support they need to be effective advocates. The Housing Alliance can help mobilize your board members to advocate for the resources and polices needed to end homelessness and expand access to affordable housing.
