Angela Leopold knows people and gets results. As an NSA partner and co-chair of the Issue Advocacy division, Angela directs top to bottom grassroots campaigns, earned and social media strategies, and coalition building activities. She has worked on state and national issues such as healthcare, taxation, and energy. Currently, Angela directs and manages one of the largest “issue” grassroots armies ever assembled in Pennsylvania.
Angela’s experience as a political fundraiser has helped her develop creative, direct approaches to navigating grassroots campaigns that include issue-based forums, consensus building, and reputation management, which utilizes her well-established relationships and strong, broad-based coalition networks.
All politics is local. Angela has successfully managed several local races drawing on her impressive skills of organizing and mobilizing grassroots armies at the local level. From circulating petitions to building relationships with local business and community leaders, Angela leveraged her connections in creative ways, which ultimately allowed her candidates to win these local elections.
A member of the NSA team since 2005, Angela previously served at the Republican State Committee of Pennsylvania (RSC), where she rose from intern to Finance Director. In that position, she helped raise over $2.5 million in 2004 through events, direct mail, telemarketing, and new donor prospecting. She also organized all of the activities for RSC and the Pennsylvania delegation at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City.
Angela currently serves as Board Chair for the Central PA Chapter of the American Red Cross and in 2016 graduated from the Leadership Harrisburg Area Executive program.
When Angela is not pulling it all together at work, she is pulling together ways to support non-profits including the D.R.E.A.M. Partnership. In her spare time, Angela loves to explore the corners of the world, the culinary arts and running long distances. She’s completed several races including five half-marathons while being cheered on by her husband Joe and son Mark.
