Thank you to those who came this past Friday. It was a good kicking off point! Armed with knowledge of how to do it better, next year should be a bigger success. We have already scheduled Lobby Day for next year on February 14th. So put in on the calender and plan on spreading the love! We have a kitchen reserved, so it should go a little smoother. We are taking ideas on how to incorporate “love” day with our themes for lobbying. Also, if you could solidify the points you discussed with the Representatives you talked to via email that would be great. If you forgot who spoke to or don’t have their contact info let Danyelle or I know and we’ll see if we can help. Thank you again for your continual support of our profession and association.

Do you want your voice to be heard?
We need your support!
Visiting Lobby Day in Salt Lake City helps our profession!
Also, you do not need to be a member of ADHA to come join us and support your profession. So please, come one, come all!
Representative Cosgrove has come through for us! He has made it clear that it is very important for us to show up at the capitol this year, even though we don’t have any bills before the legislature. 40% of the legislators are newly elected this year and it is important they know what is important to us and what we are passionate about…..prevention!
Lobby Day is: Friday, February 15, 2013
Time: 8 AM-2 PM You do not have to come for the whole time, even an hour or two will be helpful.
Where: State Office Building Room 1112, on the Capitol grounds
Please do not be intimidated, we have everything already prepared and will go over everything you need to know prior to talking to any legislators. All you need to do is show up! The important thing to realize is that we need to start showing a presence and making connections with these elected officials. This will allow us to start building relationships, so we are prepared and have contacts in the future. If they know who we are, and know we show up, it will be easier in the future to get their ear when we do have bills before the legislature. Also, you will not need to talk if you are uncomfortable, you can just accompany someone who is speaking. We still need your support!
Register here or please R.S.V.P. by emailing Danyelle firstname.lastname@example.org with the time you are available to show up.
