Innovate to Motivate (I2M) was created in 2002 to address the needs of veteran political engagement professionals. We knew then, and believe today, that optimal government relations results derive from an evidence-based culture, application of scientific influence principles, and personal leadership. The biennial I2M conference is conducted in odd-numbered years, and we conduct shorter learning experiences in election years. Research. Influence. Lead. 2019 (RIL) is a one-day conference designed to emphasize the research, influence, and leadership disciplines that are critical to today’s government relations professional in a fast-paced, one-day format.
As with our I2M conference, serving as an RIL faculty member is a competitive process. Our Advisory Committee considers presentation proposals for certain topics and votes to determine the most deserving submissions.
