The Campaign Method for More Effective
State Government Affairs
SOON "Client's Guide to Contract Lobbyists and Lobbying", for and by employers of contract lobbyists and lobbyists. Robert L Guyer editor I thank the many contract lobbyists and their employers for their contributions to this book.
SOON "Campaign Method for More Effective State Government Affairs - Volume 1 Legislative Lobbying" has been sent to peer reviewers, including legislative staff, agency staff, and contract and association lobbyists. This much more comprehensive book will replace "Guide to State Legislative Lobbying" as our primary book for legislative lobbying training.
SOON Writing of "Campaign Method for More Effective State Government Affairs - Volume 2 Executive Agency Lobbying" begins this summer.
NEW The Lobby School will be in Boston giving a skills-training to one of the most up-and-coming law-lobby firms in the US.
NEW Mr. Guyer in April trained one of America's premier labor unions in the Campaign Method for More Effective Government Affairs. My methodology is very different, even dissonant, from than that used by this union. With 69 of 99 legislative chambers in Republican hands, more "right-to-work" states, and union membership aging and numerically plummeting, unions have to adapt their lobbying methods. I hope they will use some of what I gave them - despite being very different from how they have always done it.
The Lobby School provides 2-16 hour private on-site workshops customized to your issue presented at a time and place of your choosing.
Previous custom-seminar clients are a Who's Who of state and national groups.
NEW Florida accredits seminar for 14 CLEs; Arkansas for 10.5 CLEs; Arkansas Society of Association Executives for 10.5 CE hours.
