    As an HR Professional, you are uniquely positioned to shape the development of federal and state workplace laws and regulations. This presentation takes you through the basic steps of becoming involved in the public policy process; best practices for contacting, meeting, and building lasting relationships with elected officials and their staffs; and effective ways to communicating the HR professional's perspective on key workplace issues. You will also learn about the initiative SHRM has launched to create a nationwide member advocacy network of HR Advocates, collectively known as the Advocacy Team, or A-Team.
