Alaska State Legislature Lobby

Through its principal consultant and associates, APAS offers a range of lobbying consulting services with a focus on aiding groups, organizations and businesses to become more effective advocates through their own efforts. Those involved with APAS have years of experience consulting, writing and teaching various aspects of self-help advocacy in Alaska, across the United States, and around the world.

Grounded in the reality that effective lobbying is shaped by interpersonal communications and political power, APAS services are wide-ranging. They include: short talks to one and two-day workshops on lobbying in general, and particular aspects of advocacy, such as presenting testimony and tracking legislation. Services also include specific consulting for individual clients on issues and trouble-shooting on lobbying campaigns that failed, or internal problems that undermine effective advocacy. In addition, APAS advises on developing and evaluating lobby regulations.

By understanding the Alaska lobbying environment, the goals and motives of the decision-makers, the essence of lobbying power and influence, and the various aspects of organizing and implementing a lobbying campaign, you can become a more effective advocate through your own efforts.
