Anonym 0 259 Article rating: No rating

SIOP’s Government Relations Advocacy Team (GREAT) has just released a thoughtfully designed, concisely comprehensive guide summarizing SIOP’s approach to advocacy at the federal level and providing advice and resources for members who wish to pursue advocacy work.

This members-only benefit, the “Guide to Federal Outreach and Advocacy,” was created with assistance from SIOP’s advocacy partner, Lewis-Burke Associates, LLC, under the direction of GREAT Chair Alexander Alonso and Research and Science Officer Steve W. J. Kozlowski.

“SIOP has developed an active and robust advocacy effort spearheaded by GREAT and Lewis-Burke,” Steve Kozlowski said. “A really important adjunct to these efforts via SIOP leadership is to provide more active engagement in I-O advocacy by SIOP members. This guide is an important resource toward that desirable end.

Alex Alonso added, “Advocacy plays a vital role in making the science of work known; and helping SIOP members leverage advocacy to their benefit is the easiest way to make I-O relevant.  We are pleased to share this guide as a resource for members as they help grow our field.”

Last year, Joe Psychologist started an independent organizational consulting business.  He decided to take advantage of a SIOP member benefit, the Consultant Locator service.  He signed up for Consultant Locator by checking the opt-in box in his user profile. He was happy to know that his SIOP membership included a built-in marketing opportunity for his new venture. A year later, Joe’s business was booming, and he enthusiastically renewed his SIOP membership so that he could continue enjoying access to the Consultant Locator service.
