You are invited to participate in our 5th annual Tennessee Legislative Day event on Tuesday, March 6, 2018. We need members from across the State of Tennessee to represent both secondary and higher education institutions in advocating on behalf of educational issues currently facing the Tennessee Legislature.
This event is an incredible opportunity to share your voice on behalf of SACAC, NACAC, and your student constituents to a captive audience. It is a lot of fun, and we will provide training along with breakfast so that everyone is comfortable and confident speaking about the issues. “Day on the Hill” is great, bipartisan way to learn a lot about our state government and national issues, and make some new friends in the field!
We have once again condensed the program to a one day format this year with the hope that many of you can attend. Here is an overview of what to expect from the program:
Tuesday, March 6
· 8:00am CST: Meet at Vanderbilt University in Nashville for breakfast and a legislative briefing on hot topics in education at the state and national levels and advocacy training with the NACAC GovRel Office.
· 10:30-2:30pm CST: Small group meetings with state senators and representatives at the Tennessee Capitol.
Please register on the SACAC webpage by February 23 if you are interested, and we will provide more details regarding hotel accommodations and scheduling. If costs are prohibitive or if you have an interest in serving on a steering committee for this initiative or for others in the TN area, please email Betsey Bachert ASAP.
