Prepare for the 2019 General Assembly Session.
Power Presentations from Issue Experts
charge our Advocacy & Action Batteries.
In less than 10 minutes each expert, dedicated to affecting legislation on vital issues, will Predict and Preview where action will be needed.
These experts, 15 to 20 each year, have experience lobbying on the Front Lines in our General Assembly so they provide specific, ready-to-use advocacy/action messages.
This annual meeting in December prepares us to visit our own legislators at home even before the General Assembly convenes in January.
Not only do advocacy experts preview legislation but one or two Cabinet Secretaries come to describe important issues for the upcoming General Assembly session.
Opportunities to network with advocacy groups and activists is one of the top reasons given for attending.
On Wednesdays during the GA Session, the League hosts an hour-long morning briefing by Legislators and/or Advocacy/Issue groups (WLRT Women’s Legislative Roundtable Meetings). Thus, we get updates on legislation throughout the Session so that our advocacy messages are very timely. League members who attend on Wednesdays arrange to visit their legislators and committee meetings and floor sessions.
To learn more about the Roundtable, read LWV-VA’s brochure.
