VCA LEGISLATIVE DAY ORIENTATION & INFORMATION
Please join VCA for this free event in Richmond on Monday, January 30, 2017 for VCA’s annual Legislative Day. This important advocacy event begins at the University of Richmond Downtown at 8:30 am with a briefing about current legislative activities and “how to advocate effectively” by VCA’s Lobbyist, Becky Bowers-Lanier. From 9:30 am – 11:30 am, we’ve reserved the 5 West conference room. During this time we’ll host a continental breakfast reception for legislators and their aides. Plan to spend some time in the conference room as well as making an appointment to visit with your delegate and senator. When you call for your appointments with your legislators, be sure to mention the reception and invite them to it. Legislative Day is your opportunity to join counselors from across Virginia in advocating for the counseling profession. Learn more about Virginia’s legislative process and how your involvement makes a difference in the lives of fellow counselors and the people we serve.
The day's schedule is below as well as directions & parking info for UR Downtown.
