How can you be you sure that when you contact your state or federal representatives, they understand what you are trying to communicate? Your time is valuable and the issues are important. Learn insider tips from key decision makers in Washington D.C. and our state Capitol so you can truly Make Your Voice Count!

This unique opportunity is unlike any event we've ever done - bringing in the decision makers to teach specifically how to be effective in making your voice count when you speak out on important issues. These friends of the family and of Center for Arizona Policy will share what works - and what doesn't.
