Podcast: Do's and Don'ts of Advocacy: Helping Your Federal Relations Officer Advance the IT Agenda

This hour and sixteen minute podcast features a panel discussion recorded at the EDUCAUSE 2008 Policy Conference. The discussion, "Do's and Don'ts of Advocacy: Helping Your Federal Relations Officer Advance the IT Agenda," includes the following participants:

  • Anna M. Gould, Project Assistant for EDUCAUSE
  • Timothy Lance, President and Chairman of NYSERNet, Inc.
  • Bob Samors, Associate VP of Research & Science Policy at NASULGC
  • Michael A. Waring, Executive Director of Federal Relations for the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor

This session features some real-world training about how lobbying works and the keys to effective advocacy. In addition, lobbying meetings (both good and bad) are role-played to give a feel for the sorts of issues that come up and how best to advance the cause. This session seeks to aid IT professionals in understanding how their federal relations officers work and the best ways CIOs can assist in making that advocacy successful.
