Lobbying Training for organizations without a lobbyist.
Let’s face it. Lobbying is a closed-door, insider’s baseball game. Only those with expensive lobbyists, in-house government relations officers or other staff with extensive political experience stand a chance of successfully advocating for their goals at the local, county, state or federal level.
It’s not right. And Nexus Werx LLC’s Lobbying Training is predicated on the belief that anyone can learn what the lobbyists and insiders know. Lobbying 101 trainings provide you, your team, and volunteers with the tools you need to achieve your regulatory, legislative, or budgetary goals.
You shouldn’t have to outsource your government relations to an expensive lobbyist. Learn what you need to know so you can achieve your goals.
Whether you don’t know the difference between a Rep and a Senator or you just need a brush-up on committee structure, Nexus Werx LLC offers:
- Specially-designed workshops, such as Lobbying 101 for associations
- Tailored one-on-one lobbying training for CEOs, Development Directors, etc.
- “Day on the Hill” trainings for organization volunteers
- Activism 101 trainings for individuals & organization volunteers
“Stefanie’s knowledge of how the system works is invaluable to those of us in the non-profit sector. Getting to the right person with the right information/questions/data can make all the difference in effectively getting support from local/state/federal government.”
Anne McManus, President
“Stefanie Coxe worked as my legislative aide for five years. She has extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with the legislature and governmental agencies. As my legislative aide, she successfully and professionally advocated for many projects, budget priorities, and pieces of legislation on my behalf and on behalf of our constituents. I’ve seen many non-profits and businesses expend time and money trying to advocate on their own to no avail; what Stefanie offers saves on resources and can ultimately lead to growth and new revenue and other resources in the most economic manner.”
Cleon H. Turner, Fmr. State Representative
1st Barnstable District – Massachusetts
“Stefanie is a very talented political strategist with strong connections to operatives based on the Cape & Islands and on Beacon Hill. She has great knowledge of advocacy strategies, the legislative process, and the needs of non-profits.”
Jay Coburn, Executive Director
Community Development Partnership
“My experience with Stefanie began with the Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT) extension in Dennis and Yarmouth. The CCRT is a delicate environmental project with a host of governmental agencies. Stefanie was instrumental in initiating a joint meeting of all stakeholder to jump start a stalled project and guiding us through the process.“I can’t thank Stefanie enough for her assistance with the most difficult first steps with the CCRT project. Based on the progress made for this section of the CCRT extension, Cape Cod Commission staff is in discussions with multiple towns to extend the CCRT from Woods Hole to Bourne and from Bourne to Provincetown.”
Glenn Cannon, Technical Services Director
Cape Cod Commission
“In her position of aide to Congressman Keating, I had the good fortune to work with Stefanie Coxe numerous times on issues of importance to the Town of Dennis. None more so than when the proposed westerly extension of the Cape Cod Rail Trail project was in danger of losing millions in Federal funding for not meeting required deadlines because of the failure on the part of several State agencies to prioritize and coordinate the activities necessary to move the design to final approval. At the town’s request for help, Stefanie brought all the parties to the table and through organization skill and sheer will, “encouraged” them to work together to meet the deadlines. I can honestly say that without her efforts, the project would never have become a reality.”
