Advocate for Your Office

1:00p.m. – 2:00p.m., ET

Anne DeSeta DarConte, CAE

Anne DeSeta DarConte, CAE serves as Senior Advisor of HillStaffer, LLC. With more than 30 years of federal, state, and local government relations experience, she advises clients on advocacy strategies and programs including: legislative and regulatory messaging; Hill Days and advocate training; grassroots, grass tops and community outreach; and GOTV efforts. Ms. DarConte’s successful initiatives have been recommended as models of best practices.


In this session learn:

  • Why it’s important to be an advocate
  • Identifying relevant advocacy issues
  • Qualities of effective advocacy

Advocacy is about promoting your cause, industry, or profession, often for the purpose of impacting public policy. Whether the state legislature is creating new laws that impact how you do your job, or your local county commission is not allocating adequate resources to help you best serve your constituencies, PRIA members need to be advocating on behalf of themselves. In this webinar, we will help you recognize opportunities for advocacy as well as discuss how to be an effective advocate. Also, we will cover best practices for developing relevant relationships, understanding how the public policy process works, and creating impactful communication messages. After all, if you do not stand up for your profession or industry, who will?

About this session:
    Electronic Recording (eRecording) has been steadily progressing throughout the United States since it was first implemented in 1998. Because of this, it is important now more than ever to get Recorders and Submitters working together to make this process more efficient, reduce rejections, have fewer duplicate recordings, and have an overall higher quality of permanently archived images. This webinar will go over the six eRecording best practices for submitters that have been identified by the work group and answer any questions you might have.
