Production of Congressional Delegation Tours
Henderson Strategies, Inc. has a strong record of working directly with clients and government partners to produce full-scale Congressional delegation tours of communities and businesses across the country to shed light on complex issues and build lasting relationships between clients and policymakers.
Having had multiple successes navigating the appropriations process, Henderson Strategies, Inc. will work with your organization to implement a campaign designed to drive federal appropriations into areas that most benefit your needs. For example, working directly with industry representatives, Henderson helped to secure over $100M in emergency appropriations for the Gulf coast shrimp and oyster industries following the devastating 2005 hurricane season, and $22M in FY 2018 to revitalize the aging Argos satellite constellation.
Targeted Political Giving
It is a reality of our system of government that candidates require significant funding to win public office. Organizations that intend to develop and maintain positive relationships with the individuals shaping our world should, when possible, consider showing their support for these individuals in the form of campaign contributions.
Capitalize on the strength of your neighbors while increasing your own. Henderson Strategies will facilitate the development of strong partnerships with organizations that share your common goals. The more broad-based a coalition is, the wider individual members’ reach will become, publicly and politically. Coalitions developed and managed include: The Argos Alliance, The Gulf Oyster Industry Council, The Gulf Seafood Institute, the Wild American Catfish Coalition, and Stronger America Through Seafood.
Enlist and energize your staff, partners and friends to speak on your behalf through a carefully-crafted grassroots campaign that boils your needs down into a simple, yet effective, message. Henderson Strategies will provide your organization with the tools to clearly communicate this message to lawmakers.
