Storytelling for Parks and Recreation Advocacy

You likely already have a heartfelt story you tell when describing what parks and recreation means to you and your community - but do you know how to make your story resonate all the way to Capitol Hill? Your elected officials rely on stories to understand how their votes impact their community, but in this age of near-instant communication, you need to know how to make your story stand out and be memorable. Hear from expert speakers and the NRPA Public Policy team on how to craft a powerful, evocative story that will appeal to your local, state, and federal officials.

Guest Speaker: Julie Dixon, Research Director for National Journal.
