2022 Fall Advocacy Workshops5 Member Recognition Points Logo


Given inflation, staffing challenges, frozen state/local funding, and the fiscal cliff when one-time federal funding runs out, the 2023-25 state budget is going to be critical for public schools.

Join us for a hands-on evening workshop on how to develop the kind of relationships with lawmakers and their staff that will make you a better, more effective legislative advocate for your students and your schools during the state budget process.

The registration fee is $120 for in-person workshops and $65 for the online workshop. Dinner is included for the in-person events.
