MSTA Regions are supporting the MSTA Governmental Relations program by sponsoring legislative events. If you have ever thought about attending, now would be a great time to do so. Make plans to discuss with lawmakers the importance of the job that you do for students everyday.
Legislators want to hear from their constituents, and with the impact that legislators have on education policy and funding, it is very important for MSTA members to attend the various legislative events that the MSTA Regions sponsor.
Capitol visits begin with a briefing by the MSTA Governmental Relations staff, and then members are off to discuss the issues that are important to them. MSTA members will report via a form about their visit with legislators, and if the MSTA staff needs to follow up with any legislators.
For more information or to make plans to attend, please contact your specific region.
