Advocacy Strategy and Tactics
We keep our employers up-to-date on health policy that affects them using social media, blogs, webinars, newsletters, Events by The Alliance, partner events, and media relations.
Public Official Education and Outreach
We involve employers and other stakeholders in sharing unique insight and perspective with public officials by contacting officials directly, sharing issue briefs, writing editorials and opinion pieces, and presenting to community groups.
We meet with state and federal legislators, testify at public hearings, submit comments on proposed regulations, and write letters or organize letter-writing campaigns for our employers.
We partner with other coalitions and organizations to leverage a stronger voice with lawmakers, stay informed with timely insights and political opportunities, and collaborate with other self-funded employers and groups. This enables us to share those insights with our members in the form of educational opportunities and events.
