Lobbyist_Agriculture_Corporate_Energy_Cansler ConsultingHelping Non-Profits Thrive in a Recession

Nonprofit Associations across the U.S. will be among the first to express the importance of maintaining an experienced, well-positioned lobbyist to advocate issues important to their members. However, non-profits are continuing to feel the ill-effects of the recession as revenues dwindle and the pressures remain from members demanding results and representation. Amidst these economic pressures, many nonprofits are finding outside lobbying firms are just as effective at delivering needed results for their association and at significantly reduced costs.

Cansler Consulting uses a decade of experience lobbying multiple federal issues for a prominent non-profit group to successfully implement your association's legislative agenda. We have worked internally with multiple association Committees to build legislative platforms, draft corresponding legislation and develop successful lobbying plans for adoption and implementation.
