Public policy work is hard. Collaborative work is hard. Add the two together and you get a complex enterprise. There have been no magic formulas or can’t-miss strategies. Determining why and how to take on policy work requires steady inquiry, analysis, strategy, openness, and horsepower. But the results can be significant. 

Based on interviews with members of regional association affinity groups, the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers has created a self-assessment tool and planning checklist to help affinity groups engaging in policy work determine how well they’re set up for success. During this webinar we will review the tools and hear from members of regional associations that are engaging affinity group policy work.

Moderator: Mark Sedway, The Giving Practice, Philanthropy Northwest.
