The 2024 FROM Pre-Con Registration
The 2024 FROM Pre-Con
June 13, 2024
10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
This year’s FROM Pre-Conference Training will explore the role of public policy and advocacy in advancing your organization’s goals, providing an overview of the current state and federal policies that most directly impact people with disabilities, and discussing how to get involved at the local and state levels to shape the passage and implementation of those policies.
The FROM Pre-Con will feature strategies and tools to help you prepare for a successful advocacy campaign, including identifying your policy goals, key messages, allies, policymaker targets, and metrics to measure your success. Through our facilitator Mary Kingston Roche’s unique and proven approach to community building and legislative advocacy, you will also examine issues like intellectual humility, unlikely partnerships, and remaining true to yourself amid public conflict.
Mary Kingston Roche is the Founder of Live Curious LLC, a TEDx speaker, and an education and policy leader with nearly 20 years of experience working at all levels of policy change. She is a former teacher, school board member, and advocate who has led efforts to secure policies and funding from the federal to local levels that have improved children and families’ well-being and quality of education and has helped hundreds of leaders build their capacity as advocates.
Join us for this informative, enriching pre-con to help you strengthen your advocacy efforts and secure more policy wins!
