Advocacy Institute registration opens

School leaders can now register to tell Congress what works in their local school district. Organizers of the Advocacy Institute in the nation's capital say school board members can make a difference for education-related national legislation by joining the Illinois delegation to NSBA’s Federal Relations Networking event in Washington, D.C. on January 27-29, 2019. For more information, visit the event website.

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-based Conference’s regular hours in the Grand Ballroom Foyer, Hyatt East Tower.
