MASB discovers CapWiz!

As part of a new effort to beef up grassroots lobbying efforts, the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB) rolled out a "new advocacy web site powered by CapWiz":http://capwiz.com/masb/home/, a grassroots advocacy system offered by Washington, DC-based "Capitol Advantage":http://capitoladvantage.com/.

MIPFS has been using CapWiz for nearly two years now, and we have to agree that it's a great system. From a voter's point of view, it makes the process of sending a message to your legislators nearly effortless. Unlike other systems, you get accurate results identifying your legislators just from inputting your address, and drafting a message is easy. From the advocacy group's point of view, you can create an "alert" with background information, offer "talking points" to users to include in their messages, and much more. There are many other features useful to an advocacy organization, but the "send a message" functionality sealed the deal for us.

We've had considerable success with it, and we wish the MASB luck with their new system.
