IAC brings professionals together to advocate for greater issue awareness and important policy and practice changes. A core function since our inception in 1996 has been to act as a unified voice for service providers. In a 2018 members survey, 65% of members stated they joined the IAC primarily for advocacy purposes.
The foundation of IAC’s advocacy work is our Children’s Agenda of Priorities. Annually we survey our membership on progress made towards these priorities, and the critical issues they face. These needs inform our annual advocacy platform, which is driven by our Advocacy Committee.
If you are interested in learning more about our current advocacy priorities or in joining the Advocacy Committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
