Advocacy Simplified

Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v21 n6 p35-36 Jul-Aug 2008
Most state professional associations promote and fund at some level, an advocacy program. These advocacy programs usually aim to support or plead for a program, policy, or proposal. They can range from simple communication to complex strategies, from daily interactions to annual productions, and from position papers to onsite, legislative visits. Even with the plethora of advocacy tips, techniques, and principles available to guide groups, advocacy can be a daunting task, especially for volunteers who have full and busy schedules. In an effort to simplify the process, the authors have opted for a streamlined approach to advocacy, which permits keeping track of a select number of initiatives and events. Key elements of the Florida advocacy plan that has proven to be effective include: (1) Budget; (2) Lobbyist; (3) Advocacy Strategy Panel; (4) Coalition of Partner Groups; (6) American Heart Association (AHA); and (7) FitNet.
