Lobby Day Information

This email went out this afternoon to Lobby Day Attendees. Vicky McLeod is Chair of the CSUEU Legislative Committee. CSUEU Lobby Day is March 3-4, 2008.

Hello Lobby Day 2008 Members,

The Legislative Committee and I Welcome you to attend Lobby Day 2008! The committee has been working hard at organizing and planning for another successful year meeting with Legislators.

I will be sending you various emails this week to give you up-to-date information so you may plan your visit and be prepared. Several people who submitted a registration form did not include an email address so please feel free to share my emails to participants from your campus.

I am attaching you a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) to guide you as you prepare to arrive in Sacramento. Also, the 2006-2007 Campus Area Chart, which gives you a listing of each campus Assembly and Senate members. I have created a Legislative Listing by each campus as well and will have that at the training. A restaurant dining guide is attached which are yummy restaurants around the Sheraton.

Lobby Day Training will begin earlier this year (10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.). We have wonderful speakers planned and role playing will take place to practice and make sure you feel comfortable when visiting Legislators. Our visits with Legislators will not be actual confirmed appointments, but this will allow for you to visit many offices, attend hearings, and sub-committees. Since our main topic is the CSU budget, the committee is still working on Talking Points and this will be available at the training session.
