The Colorado Weed Management Association (CWMA) has been represented by contracted lobbyists at the state capital for more than a decade. Through the implementation of coordinated strategic actions, CWMA has raised the political profile of noxious weeds among legislators and decision makers in Colorado. President Kayla Malone, Chaffee County Weed Manager and NAISMA Board Member, and Brett Moore, Founder of OnTheBallot Consulting, will share their strategy for raising the political profile of invasive species, specifically noxious weeds, management among lawmakers. CWMA collaborates with numerous partners to host an annual Legislative Awareness Day and will share the process, goals, and benefits to doing so. The presenters will provide information on a variety of activities they utilize, and that attendees can duplicate, to build relationships that aid in informing the legislative process.
