Policy Agenda Development Process- Community Input
Share |

As part of our strategic plan, PUMP is developing a public policy agenda to guide our advocacy efforts relevant to our strategic priorities (Diversity & Inclusion, Education & Employment, Infrastructure & Connectivity, and Health & Wellness). The goal of the public policy agenda process is to identify the top advocacy and public policy issues relevant to PUMP’s strategic priorities in order to engage, educate, and mobilize PUMP constituents to effect change. The multi-phase iterative process will engage thousands of individuals at different moments to ensure that all viewpoints are heard and represented.



May 2016: invitation-only event to glean priorities from key partners working on strategic priorities

Aug-Sept 2016: process responses and develop higher priorities from the established strategic framework, create questions to engage general public in the concepts that rose to the top of the lists at the partner event

Oct-Nov 2016: all call events and online surveys for general public to provide additional insight to further focus our priorities through interactive displays using creative thinking

Dec 2016: final online survey responses collected, process responses and refine with assistance of key partner organizations to develop public policy agenda

Early 2017: finalize advocacy and public policy agenda for approval by PUMP Board of Directors

Summer 2017: anticipated public release of the advocacy and public policy agenda


Promoting and/or attending the session(s) or participating in the online survey(s) is not in any way construed as endorsement for the final policy agenda, but we do hope that by including yourselves and your constituents in the process you will be excited by the resultant agenda and initiatives to make Pittsburgh the first choice for everyone to live, work and play.


The final agenda will be shared with all partners, business and individual members, and constituents with an opportunity to sign on as supporters of PUMP’s goals and initiatives to make Pittsburgh the first choice for everyone to live, work and play.

Thank you to our longtime sponsor and supporter
