Legislative Day is just a few short weeks away! The Public Policy Panel is excited and ready for action, but we need your help! A big impact of the visits during Legislative Day comes from the presence of constituents. When constituents come knocking, the Senators and House Members listen. The state of Michigan has many brilliant dietitians working hard every day to improve the well-being of Michiganders. We, the nutrition experts, have great stories to share about the work we do; from community outreach to disease management in hospitals and health promotion in our local schools (just to name a few). This work is important and should be shared with our Senators and House Members so they know who the nutrition experts are and what we do.
These visits are nothing more than a conversation and opportunity to build a relationship with these influential people. Whether you are an experienced veteran visitor or new to the process, it is a fun filled day. There will be training in the morning to make sure everyone is prepared and has all the tools for success. We will form teams with various members so no one will go alone. There is nothing to be nervous about because these Legislators are people just like you and me!
In addition, we will have a free Pre-Legislative Day Webinar to learn about what to expect at Legislative Day. The webinar is on September 19th at 2:00 pm. A link for the webinar will be available on our homepage on September 19th.
This event is a great opportunity to network, earn FREE CPEs, and hear from our guest speaker, Bruce McAttee, Mid-Michigan Regional Director. A delicious breakfast & lunch will be provided.
