Strategies for Building a Network of State Influencers

Date: Monday, November 7, 2022 | 2:00 – 3:00pm ET

This webinar is open to ISRI members only at no charge.


This session is designed for ISRI members who want to start networking with the state policymakers who are making decisions impacting their business operations. Our full-time jobs in recycling facilities gives us excellent perspectives, with limited time and resources, which must be targeted in intentional ways to influence the influencers. It is a perfect session for those who are uncertain how to get started networking with state influencers and can also serve as a refresher for those who have advocated in the past.


Learning Objectives

  1. Attendees will learn how to build a network of state policy influencers and help create a basic source of support for the recycling industry among state and local policymakers from the ground up.
    • Attendees will learn how to successfully identify, approach, communicate, and follow-up with policymakers.
  2. Participants will understand how trending policy discussions could impact their business operations, what topics of legislation are being proposed, and how they can help ISRI in advocating for their business interests and the recycling industry.
  3. Attendees will receive, via email after the webinar, a take-away packet with information on key issues, ISRI resources, and contacts that can assist their advocacy efforts.


Who Should Attend

ISRI members who are good communicators about what they do and why it matters to their communities, the economy, and the environment. Members from all roles within their companies are welcome. Members whose roles directly involve operational oversight and/or compliance will be directly aware of how changes in statute or regulation can impact their company’s day-to-day operations.
