Lunch will be provided as part of registration cost. This gives participants an opportunity to visit with legislative committee members about issues and approaches during visits.

1:00pm-5:00pm Afternoon visits

Individual visits with legislators

There will opening remarks and a legislative update beginning at 10am at the Secretary of State’s Office. The committee is recommending NO reception for legislators following the day’s visits. Instead library participants will be provided lunch (if they so choose) and an opportunity to create strategies for the afternoon. The hope is that the lower cost for registration and opportunity to visit with more experienced advocates will encourage new attendees or those from smaller districts to attend.
