NSBA advocacy participants
to lobby Congress

School board members will have the opportunity to join their peers from across the country at the National School Boards Association’s (NSBA) Advocacy Institute in Washington, D.C., Jan. 24-27, 2016.

The Advocacy Institute includes nationally recognized speakers, sessions designed for more interaction rather than only lecture-style presentations, and substantial programming for information and skill building around public advocacy. The Institute ends with a day on Capitol Hill where attendees have the opportunity to lobby their own members of Congress.

IASB Director of Governmental Relations Susan Hilton said additional information is forthcoming, “but anyone who may be interested should stop by the IASB Legislative Booth next to the main registration area at Joint Annual Conference to discuss this event and participation in our federal advocacy program.”

The legislative booth will be open each day during the Chicago Conference’s regular hours in the Grand Ballroom Foyer, Hyatt East Tower.

Registration is available on the NSBA Website.
