Lobby Day Information
Lobby Day Information For Registration/Legislator Appointments
Lobby Day is Tuesday, April 25, 2017.
Due to security issues and the loss of storage space in the Legislative Office Building, participant packets will only be available on-line. You will be able to download the packet in advance of Lobby Day. Information on how to access the packet will be sent to pre-registered attendees as soon as the information becomes available. There will be one packet for each Legislator at District tables. If you are meeting with a legislator alone, you should ask the District Legislative Liaison for the packet for that legislator. If you are going with a group, the spokesperson for the group should bring the packet with them.
The Chapter Office phone number will be forwarded to a staff member's cell phone. Anyone with questions can call 1-800-459-4489 and ask for Kelly.
