Building the Case for Public Statistics:
Special APDU Workshop
July 18, 2018
2018 APDU Annual Conference
Residence Inn Pentagon City
This workshop is offered as a supplemental component of the 2018 APDU Annual Conference. Register for the conference and you will receive an invitation to RSVP for the workshop.
Uncertain budgets, waning legislative support, limited knowledge about the costs and benefits of statistics… It is more important than ever that you effectively communicate about public data to your stakeholders.
Elected and appointed leaders need to hear from respected data users like you about how public data are used and why they are so vital. How do you do so effectively? It’s not just about the content of your messages, it’s also about when you share your experience.
APDU is offering a groundbreaking new program to help you. “Building the Case for Public Statistics” will help develop your communication skills in ways that improve your messaging, identify appropriate audiences, and navigate the complicated legislative process to determine when your expertise can make the greatest impact on key decisions about public data.
APDU is pleased to reintroduce the “Building the Case for Public Statistics” workshop to develop your skills in educating policymakers on the importance of Federal data. This time, it comes with twist: it will be integrated into the 2018 APDU Annual Conference!
Registrants will have access to the full conference agenda and may attend the specialized breakout sessions designed explicitly to expand your understanding of how best to work with legislators and policymakers to ensure they understand the challenges facing your favored data agency and the broader federal statistical system.
Register today to take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn from national experts on how to educate elected officials on public data. We encourage attendees to commit to attend the full session. Conference registrants will be invited to RSVP for the session to secure their place.
Spots are limited, so register for the conference today!
