Public Policy Action Institute


Looking for strategies to help your organization achieve greater impact? If so, the Public Policy Action Institute is for you! Independent Sector will host the 2016 Public Policy Action Institute (PPAI) in Washington, DC on Tuesday, November 15 through Wednesday, November 16 - immediately prior to the Independent Sector National Conference.

PPAI offers nonprofit leaders, advocates, communications professionals, and program specialists a single event to gain the information, skills and networks necessary to take their advocacy and organizational impact to the next level. Experts in the field will share their most punishing and rewarding lessons in public policy, advocacy, and collaborative partnerships with federal, state and local government.

The institute features engaging discussions on the key issues facing our sector; valuable messaging strategies for a variety of audiences; networking opportunities with other nonprofit leaders; and real-world, hands-on learning through small group breakout sessions.
