The Rich Gross Solutions' process can help individual colleges, presidents, lobbyists, system offices, and other community organizations in understanding the issues and processes involved in building effective legislative relationships that will help advance your agenda both in times of economic stability as well as challenge. The process is built on a best practices approach shared by effective college advocates as well as other organizations with track records of legislative success.
Assess your Institution and System
Rich Gross Solutions will assess the status of your current legislative program and develop effective communications based on an environmental scan. We'll then build effective relationships among legislators and create effective relationships with the private sectors and other stakeholder groups.
The Year-Round Process
During the year-round legislative relations period between Rich Gross Solution we'll be busy building relationships with legislators while demonstrating the traits of an effective lobbyist. We'll track dynamic statewide issues while building a plan and executing coalitions and annual events.
During the Session
During the legislation session we'll focus on building personal relationships with committee members and understanding committee rules. Rich Gross Solutions will educate your organization on how to win a debate, how to speak with legislators, how to work with the Governor and governmental agencies, and how to strike an agreement.
Our follow-up process includes assessing your performance, including the Community Summit process. We'll also see you through the process of hiring a lobbyist and setting the next advocacy agenda.
