Lawmakers are from Jupiter and Advocates are Neptune...everything you wanted to know about advocacy and lobbying, but were afraid to ask! 

Sure, it's a play on the classic (perhaps spoof) explanation of men and women, but doesn't it feel as though the people in charge of making these important decisions about communities, companies, and our everyday lives are in fact aliens? Together, we'll bridge that chasm and talk about effective strategies to reach these decision makers to tell your story - to change the outcome.

Speaker: Sarah Copley

Sarah began her career in Harrisburg as a lobbyist with a prominent firm on the heels of the passage of the Lobbying Disclosure Law. In 2018, she joined Commonwealth Compliance Solutions, LLC (CCS). For CCS, Sarah guides clients through compliance requirements and helps them understand the legislative process when needed. She provides tutelage on the Pennsylvania legislative process, a sharp eye on legislation with analysis, planning legislative events ("Day on the Hill"), and reporting services. Sarah's experience helps guide our lobbying clients in recognizing the activities that warrant disclosure and provide advice to ensure compliance. Additionally, Sarah brings management and recruitment skills for political action committees with advice on strategic giving and opportunities to grow PACs both financially and in influence.

Sarah has a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Administration from York College of Pennsylvania and most recently held the position of Senior Associate at a lobbying firm in Harrisburg. Sarah is a graduate of the Anne B. Anstine Excellence in Government Service Series and serves as a member of the York College Alumni Board of Directors. She is an avid volunteer, athlete, chef, and outdoorsman. If she's not at her computer, the most likely places you'll find her are in the woods with her fur baby Odin, in her laboratory (kitchen), running the Green Belt, or in the gym with a heavy barbell.
