Tuesday, April 9, 2019

www.scha-mi.org

SCHA-MI needs all of our centers to come to this one day of the year to share all the good work you do with our legislators. More than one-third of the legislature has turned over with new people. It is our job is to educate them about the importance of this program, the work that is done by you and advocate for additional funding for new school-based heath centers. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this important advocacy effort.

The program starts at 8:30 a.m. and we need you to be there before 9:00 a.m.! The day will begin at 8:30 a.m.with some light refreshments. A complimentary lunch will be provided for our registered advocates in attendance. Please note that we will not be inviting all legislators and their staff as we have in the past, but may invite a few key legislators. A complete agenda will be available in mid-March.

Anderson House Office Building, Mackinac Room, 124 North Capital Avenue, Lansing, MI 48933 Bring identification (e.g.: driver’s license) to enter the building.

Additional Information

Your Legislative Appointments: Participants may or may not get to visit your own representative as we cannot promise their schedules will permit a visit. But, we will make every effort to schedule you with that person. On the registration form, we invite you to indicate whether anyone on your team would like to also visit their home legislator, if different from the Center's or organization's legislator. You may also be asked to visit other legislator's that are critical to our work.

Pre-event Conference Call: There will be a pre-event conference call on March 26 at 2:00 pm. (Phone: 712-451-0134; Pin: 203345#) The purpose of the call is to help familiarize you with the goals of Advocacy Day, to know what to expect and to make you more comfortable with the process. Anyone from your Center or organzation can be on the call. Those who have never attended Advocacy Day may find the call especially helpful. A reminder will be sent, but please mark it on your calendar.
