An Iola resident is among the 2010 class of Advocacy Fellows for the Sunflower Foundation. David Toland of Thrive Allen County is one of a class of 15 nonprofit leaders from across the state who will learn how to become effective public policy advocates for their organizations and the people they serve. The Advocacy Fellowship class is part of the foundation’s non-partisan advocacy initiative, which is designed to provide education and training opportunities for nonprofit leaders. The goal is to bring the perspective of the nonprofit world to public policy. Toland and the others will participate in several sessions next year that include a visit to Washington, DC.
