MAVA is working to pass the Volunteerism Bill this year, which is designed to bring funds to you and your organization to build and expand effective volunteer engagement. So join us February 25 to learn how advocacy at the State Capitol is essential to your work!
Agenda: 9:00 AM - Registration check-in
9:15-10:15 AM - Advocacy training and practice
10:15-11:30 AM - Meet with lawmakers
11:30 AM - Optional post-meeting group debrief
We'll kick off the day with an update about the Bill and an advocacy training, where we'll have a chance to practice our talking points. Afterwards we'll group up and meet either with our own lawmakers (if you scheduled meetings with them) or with the lawmakers on the House and Senate Jobs Committees. After meeting with lawmakers you are free to leave or join us for an optional debrief back in conference room 316 at 11:30 AM. There won't be a group lunch but you are welcome to bring snacks and beverages.
Show your MAVA pride by wearing purple!
