OMG That's how Hank was born!
Emily Kutzavitch

Hank the elephant....for the new participants. Hah

In an effort to connect with he Member on a personal level: is it appropriate for speakers to reference personal facts that are included in our members profile to start conversations and link them to the ask? (I.e. if I am an alum of the same school as the member, can I open up my talk with facts like that and then tie it to the ask?)
Ryan Zlatanova (he/him)
01:26:43
Reminder: you can turn on closed captions using the CC button on the bottom bar of your Zoom.
Eric Berman
01:32:19
Is the phrase “entitlement spending” passe?
Eric Berman
01:36:39
And just for clarity, we’re not advocating for a specific bill or spending on a particular program, we just want the budget bucket for international conservation to be sufficiently funded, right?
Eric Berman
01:42:11
Hey - my face is cut off in that picture!!
Ryan Zlatanova (he/him)
01:42:32
We see you in our hearts, Eric
Christopher Pham
01:42:34
Sorry Eric……😆
Christopher Pham
01:43:22
i got the Green Bike Pin From Blumenauer’s office that needs to be SEEN
Eric Berman
01:44:34
like in person meetings, each group will have a WWF team lead there, right?
Maci Tetrick
01:44:42
Is there a way to take a screenshot through Zoom? Or what is the best way to take a screenshot of the virtual meeting?
Sally Pearne
01:45:51
What letter are we asking if they have signed?
Lindsey Coffey
01:47:22
For full screenshot on MacBook its shift + command + 3 if you want to pick and choose what to screenshot, shift + command + 4 and then drag
Eric Berman
01:57:01
So look around the room and if you don’t see the group lead, then it’s you! :)
Maci Tetrick
01:58:43
Will we be able to share those screenshots after the meeting on our social media pages?
Sally Pearne
02:00:59
Thank you, Sara - I had not remembered letters in past years.
Nicole Hale
02:03:59
In one of the last slides, when talking about what to do after the meeting I believe, you mention an app with features to help us. What app is that?
Emily Kutzavitch
02:05:54
Even the "toughest" of offices were open to this last year because of COVID, so I would imagine it will be even easier this year
Maci Tetrick
02:07:18
Thanks, Shellie! :)
Jessica Lazarus (she, hers)

here is WWF's Living Planet Report 2020 for your reference: https://livingplanet.panda.org/en-us/
Jonathan Cass
02:42:47
Shellie touched on the huge budget deficit, Will, given that we are lobbying on asking for a significant increase in international conservation funding, what do we say if an office is responds with concerns of increasing any spending?
Kristy Brauch Clougherty
02:44:01
Will can you please detail a bit on the return of investment?
Emily Kutzavitch
02:44:51
Can you please give specific areas to focus on with offices that aren't so "friendly"? I know we can't about how important the recent pandemic can be a major focus. I know in the past it was illegal trade as well. But is there anything else that is very current that are easy things to point to for the harder offices? Thanks!
Emily Kutzavitch
02:45:03
can talk about*
Emily Kutzavitch
02:46:23
Oh, there are a million mistakes in that statement. I apologize. *goes to pour more coffee
Matt Ballen
02:51:50
In previous years we received information with specific financial figures related to conservation funding and loss due to conservation challenges such as annual revenue lost due to IUU. Will we have access to that this year?
Christopher Pham [HE/HIM]
02:54:32
11 million Activist in the US! 🤯
Matt Ballen
02:57:07
Cool, thanks

Will are there any data points on other nation’s spend on international conservation aid? Does China or Russia provide such aid (tied to other agenda etc)?
Brianna Hernandez
03:01:57
^the just released the latest report in feb. the document has policy recommendations, narratives about the links between security threats and ecosystem degradation, and lots of case studies
Brianna Hernandez
03:02:05

Clare Connor
03:07:13
this is incredibly detailed and helpful info but I’m new to this and wondering how we work it into a 15 call?
Clare Connor
03:10:57
how it dovetails into a 15 minute call is really what I mean
Clare Connor
03:12:06
and what packet is Will referring to?
Laura Frank
03:13:32
How do you ask to accelerate increases in the first two years? Is the commitment only for a year? Thank you.
Becky Erickson
03:14:58
Just curious, why are grasslands not mentioned?
Lindsey Coffey
03:16:27
Is there a way to get the slideshows we watched today?
Sandy
03:18:43
This was great!! Appreciate more information so I can get the over view. Better than a watered down bullet points. This was the deep dive I like.
Brianna Hernandez
03:19:01
a dream job ❤️
Emily Kutzavitch
03:20:55
Team leads will help the group figure out what stories and points are best for each person. :)
Clare Connor
03:21:10
it was very helpful - again I’m new to this so trying to understand the tension between although this very good information and our limited time but it’s being explained now
Jessica Lazarus (she, hers)
03:23:21
just confirmed, the portal has been updated and these documents are in there
Nicole Hale
03:25:05
Is using the portal fairly intuitive
Nicole Hale
03:25:18
I have not watched the 3rd webinar yer
Nicole Hale
03:25:24

Lindsey Coffey
03:28:28
What can we type in to check our spam
Ryan Zlatanova (he/him)
03:28:46
try advocacy
Christopher Pham [HE/HIM]
03:28:54
This WWF team really knows how to prepare us for talking to congress. It’s such a great program and training ! It’s the reason why this is my 3rd time with the WWF. That, and also the fact that we need to save nature.
Lindsey Coffey
03:29:04
Got it thank you!
Emily Kutzavitch
03:29:34
And apparently there are going to be FOUR mock meetings. Haha. That's a lot of staff pretending to hate pandas.
Jessica Lazarus (she, hers)
03:30:14
If anyone didn't receive the email about the AdvocacyDay web portal, please email me
Clare Connor
03:30:22
Agree! it’s a lot for someone new to it but the training sessions have been great!
Kristy Brauch Clougherty
03:31:37
Can you please detail how we go about getting staff contacts while in a group setting for us newbies?
Emily Kutzavitch
03:32:04
Clare, we got you! It is overwhelming the first year but it's very easy. WWF just gives you everything so you're prepared for every circumstance. Remember, we are voters and have the power.
Laura Czekala
03:32:35
Thanks Will! Great support, appreciate it! And it is Fun!
Clare Connor
03:32:38
thank you for your time Will
Becky Erickson
03:34:17
Thank you
Sally Pearne
03:34:26
Thank you, WWF Staff, for all you do, and for enabling us to play a role in your mission, which all of us share!
Christopher Pham [HE/HIM]
03:34:41
this may be a stupid question, but just to clarify,: this appropriations ask is for the FY22 not FY21 correct? Time doesn’t make any sense anymore
Sandy
03:34:46
Thank you ! I have another meeting at 1:30. Thanks
Brianna Hernandez
03:34:52
@Sara it is on the portal in the meeting info part
Emily Kutzavitch
03:35:00

Jeff Neterval
03:35:17

Christopher Pham [HE/HIM]
03:35:40
Thanks Em for looking out 🙌🏼
Laura Czekala
03:36:19
Thanks to all for all the hard work to help us be well prepared to make the ask! Amazing what you accomplished virtually for us!
Kristy Brauch Clougherty
03:36:33
This training is so helpful. I’m confident with my area of talking points because it was covered today.
Jeff Neterval
03:37:32
Too wonky I will ask Will separately
Lynne Meschel-Bovenzi
03:38:16
