The Advocacy Process

Public Policy Advocacy is a process - one that requires technical competency, thoughtful analysis, and critical inquiry, all of which are directed toward achieving the best results for a client or employer. A public policy advocate  serves as the link between defining the problem and devising a solution of measurable economic value.
