Winter Conference and Lobby Day

On Thursday, February 2, conference attendees will meet for an opening session to provide information to help you navigate the Capitol and talk to your legislator. Then, we will board buses for the Capitol, or, if it is more convenient, you may meet us there. We will then spend the morning meeting with legislators, attending floor hearings, and taking a guided tour of the building.

We will return to the hotel in time for lunch, and then have an afternoon of breakout sessions. The Friday format for the conference will be similar to that of previous conferences, starting with a short general session, and then featuring a wide range of breakouts for the rest of the day.

Note: If you want to meet with your legislators, you can schedule these appointments directly with their offices after the second week of January. Members of the Legislative Committee will be available upon request to attend those meetings with you, if you would like. Attendees are also encouraged to connect with MASBO members attending from other schools, but within the same legislative district, to arrange meetings with legislators. Not sure who represents your district? Use this directory to find your legislators. More detailed information on our day at the Capitol will be emailed to registered attendees as we get closer to the event.
