Lobby Day: March 3-4, 2008

Lobby Day information was sent out recently, with a very short deadline for response (this Friday, February 1, 2008). Here is the message, sent as an email attachment to chapter presidents:

January 25, 2008

Dear Chapter Presidents,

I’m Vicky McLeod, Chair of the Legislative Committee and on behalf of the committee we encourage and welcome your attendance at Lobby Day 2008.

Monday, 3/3/08
Tuesday, 3/4/08

FUNDED: Chapter president and one participant from each campus. A campus can send more participants at campus expense.

Lobby Day training will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, 3/3, so we are aware that people will arrive Sunday evening. Also, all Legislator visits will be by walk-in to allow everyone to visit Senate and Assembly and to attend hearing and committee meetings throughout the day with no strict timeframe.

The reservation form will be emailed January 25th to all chapter presidents. Forward the registration form to the appropriate individual(s) on your campus and submit by the deadline. It is important to complete and submit the registration form by February 1st to headquarters since there will be no exceptions for late registration forms. All reservations must be made by completing the registration form and submitting to headquarters. I will continue to send more information as Lobby Day approaches.

I have included some websites to review at your leisure.
