Lobby Day 2019
February 25 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Members will have an opportunity to come down to the Capitol and lobby their legislators directly on adequate and equitable funding, improving student outcomes, and other issues of importance to locally elected school boards.
The day will begin with an advocacy workshop in the Historic Senate Chambers at 9 a.m. During lunch, members will hear from Kathy Hoffman, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and have the chance to watch the House/Senate in action as they debate bills on the floor. The House Education Committee will be meeting at 2 pm, and all attendees are invited to a cocktail hour from 4-6pm to interact with elected officials in an informal environment.
