Advocacy Workshops

ADEA is Accepting Requests for Advocacy Workshops

ADEA’s 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.
