Sept. 10, 2012 - PRLog -- Capitol Seminars has added an “Advanced Lobbying 201” seminar to its September schedule to follow the introductory “Legislative Process / Lobbying 101” seminar already set for September 13.

“Advanced Lobbying 201” is scheduled for Friday, September 28 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. at the Meridian Plaza Building, 1415 L Street in Sacramento, California.

Conducted by Capitol Seminars founder Ray LeBov, a veteran of 37 years working in and around the California Legislature, the “Advanced Lobbying 201” seminar features guest subject matter experts in the specialized areas of Budget Advocacy, Regulatory Agency Advocacy, Media Strategies, and Lobbying the Administration. Seminar attendees will be provided with real-world insights into and best practices for advocacy in these four critical areas.

The seminar is designed not only for new and experienced lobbyists and their support staff, but for organizations that engage lobbyists; law firms; trade and professional associations; nonprofit and public interest organizations; city, county and public agency officials -- in short, anyone currently active in, or considering a career in, government or public affairs. Completion of the introductory “Lobbying 101” course is not a prerequisite for enrollment.

Some firms and agencies send all their new staffers to Capitol Seminars for training.  “The Legislative Process / Lobbying 101” seminar is presented throughout the year, while “Lobbying 201” is presented at least four times a year.
