Join Chapter activists at the “Georgia Water Coalition Lobby Day at the Capitol” on February 18, 2015 from 8:30 am to 10:00 am, with an informal lunch to follow.
Participants will meet at the Central Presbyterian Church across the street from the Capitol. The morning will start with a complimentary continental breakfast, and feature presentation on the most critical conservation bills in the General Assembly. Assistance will be available for identifying and locating your representative and senator.The program will also include messaging and strategies on how to directly engage your state representatives on important water issues.
While there, you can meet with your state legislators and tell them what you expect them to achieve during the 2015-2016 sessions. Bring your fellow members and other friends with you to support environmental and conservation causes!
Following the informational session, the group will go to the Capitol around 9:30 a.m. for a group photograph to be taken at the bottom of the Capitol North stairs. After the group photograph, you will have time to call upon your legislators. Lunch will be on your own at either the “Sloppy” Floyd Building across Piedmont Avenue/MLK Drive or in the Capitol snack bar. Either before or after lunch, you will report to a debriefing room where you can share details of your visit.
