MEMSPA Lobby Day
April 17 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Dear MEMSPA Members,
Allyson Apsey and I have been excited to connect with our MEMSPA Leaders through our #WeLeadMI campaign. We have heard and seen from many of you as you share the great things you are doing and becoming advocates for our schools in Lansing and Washington, D.C.
However, we NEED you now more than ever! PLEASE JOIN US FOR OUR MEMSPA SPRING LOBBY DAY ON APRIL 17 IN LANSING! There are so many things happening right now and we need our voices heard: Gov. Whitmer’s budget proposal is out, legislators are asking questions about the 3rd Grade Reading law, and we have continue to work to reform teacher evaluations.
This is your time to jump in! We have lots of built-in support–you are provided talking points, the appointments with your legislators are arranged for you, and you can even request to go on your first appointment with a partner. Veteran lobbyists, we need you too! It is important to continue building upon the relationships we have established and to lead the way for the new principals joining us.
It is time to continue the #WeLeadMI movement and step up to make sure our student and staff voices are heard in Lansing! If you are able to join us for our lobbying day, please email Taryn Hurley at email@example.com by April 8. When emailing her, please let her know the names of your State Senator and Representative. You can find your Representative at https://www.house.mi.gov/CARES/frmFindaRep.aspx and your Senator at http://www.senate.michigan.gov/fysbyaddress.html
David and Allyson
