Boise–ICL Advocacy Training, Getting Ready for the Idaho Legislature

NOTE: The location for this event has changed! We will now be across the street from ICL at the Idaho Education Association building.

Today we are working on building a better conservation community with you!

We want to give YOU, our members, volunteers and supporters, the tools and knowledge to become your own best advocate. You will learn all about specific opportunities that we really need your help with so you’re ready to engage in activism parallel to ICL, echoing our objectives and using your own voice and story. By volunteering to be an ICL advocate, you will gain the experience and know-how to write your own letters to the editor or personal comments to state and federal agencies, and give public testimony when appropriate.

Join us on for our advocate training every two months. This month we will focus on Idaho’s Legislative Session, and the question is: Will you be ready? 

Join Jonathan Oppenheimer, ICL’s government relations director, for an introduction to the legislative process, a discussion on priorities for the year and recommendations on how to best engage with your elected representatives. Some of the issues we anticipate for the upcoming legislative session include public lands, transportation, water quality, energy and wildlife.

You’ll learn how to track legislation that impacts you, deliver effective testimony, contact your legislators and influence the legislative process. This discussion is open to everyone—whether you’re a registered lobbyist, or someone who’s never attended a committee hearing. Join fellow ICL members and supporters for a discussion that will leave you feeling confident and prepared to make your voice heard.
