Are you fired up? We are! And we certainly hope you are, too, because ATPE’s popular lobby day and political involvement training day is just around the corner. Hundreds of ATPE members from across the state will be making their way to Austin for this exciting event.
Our general sessions on Sunday, Feb. 24, are an ideal way to learn about the top education issues facing our state while also earning continuing professional education credit. Our closing session will feature an influential panel of legislative leaders, lined up to discuss and take your live questions on education issues being discussed this session.
During the event, attendees will also get an opportunity to network with their colleagues and support ATPE-PAC by purchasing promotional items, including long- and short-sleeved ATPE at the Capitol polo shirts, pins, fleece jackets, and more.
On Monday, Feb. 25, attendees will put their training into action and descend upon the Capitol to lobby their elected officials on ATPE’s legislative priorities. Buses will provide easy transportation to and from the Capitol on Monday. ATPE is scheduling all meetings with state senators for that day, but attendees are reminded to set up their own meetings with state representatives before they come to Austin.
