About this product
- DescriptionThis book teaches students of social work and n-profit management how the government works and what they can do to effect change at the state or local level through lobbying. Social workers are very politically active and this book covers key skills taught in a policy practice course. The centerpiece of the book is a 10-step lobbying process that walks the student through important stages of lobbying. It lays out a clear, 10 point framework that helps students lobby effectively. It also provides a chapter on the 10 point process in action, which displays case examples of student projects from conception to implementation. Following the 10 point process the author also presents chapters on tax aspects of n-profits and the varying structures of such organizations. In addition the author includes chapters on budgeting, evaluation, and hiring and working with a lobbyist.
- Author BiographyPat Libby is a management consultant to non-profits and philanthropies who views the work of nonprofit organizations through the kaleidoscope of her experiences as a long-time CEO, board member, academic and consultant to innumerable organizations. Her 21-year consulting practice involves working with organizations to recruit executives, think and plan strategically, and find practical solutions to complex problems. For 14 years until July 2015, she served the University of San Diego as the founding director of its Nonprofit Institute which comprises nonprofit-focused graduate programs, a research center and community education programs serving hundreds of people and organizations each year. The Institute is frequently cited as one of the nation's premier academic centers dedicated to advancing the work of philanthropic organizations. In creating the Institute, Pat realized a vision for an academic center that would interweave research, theory, and practice. Her extensive executive management experience also includes 8 years as president/CEO of the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations. While there, she transformed a financially bankrupt organization into a nationally recognized model for statewide CDC associations, leveraging nearly $200 million for Massachusetts community development efforts in the process. Pat is also the author of two books. The Lobbying Strategy Handbook (SAGE Publications, 2012), an engaging how-to guide for nonprofit practitioners who are seeking a simple blueprint for learning how to take part in the legislative process, and, with Laura Deitrick, Cases in Nonprofit Management (SAGE 2016). A Boston native, Pat holds a graduate degree in Urban Planning from MIT and a bachelor's degree in Spanish and Sociology from Tufts University.
