 Lobby Day Information

We are excited to announce that Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel will be addressing our Lobby Day participants. Her speech will take place at 11am in Hearing Room C, at the Legislative Office Building. 

Lobby Day Information For Registration/Legislator Appointments

Lobby Day is Tuesday, May 10, 2016.  FREE Bus Transportation is available in most districts – contact your legislative liaison for information on transportation.

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.

We will have office phones forwarded to one of our cell phones.  Anyone with questions can call 1-800-459-4489 and ask for Kelly.
