is Accepting Requests for Advocacy Workshops
Advocacy and Governmental Relations portfolio (AGR) offers the ADEA Advocacy
Workshop series to all ADEA Member Institutions. AGR’s staff of advocacy
professionals (who have worked in state legislatures and the U.S. Congress)
will travel to your institution to present information on how to become an
effective advocate for academic dentistry and dental and craniofacial research.
The AGR team will provide workshop attendees with
the skills and tactics to help them successfully gain the support of elected
officials at the state and federal levels. The material is suitable for
faculty, staff and students.
AGR staff can work with participating institutions
to customize an agenda that best reflects the priorities and goals of the
school. The length of a workshop can vary from an extended lunch hour (about
two hours) to either a half or full day and includes the participation of both
local and state elected officials, as well as leaders of the region’s
professional and dental societies.
To learn more or to request an ADEA Advocacy
Workshop, please contact Yvonne Knight, J.D., ADEA Senior Vice President for
