Legislative Advocacy – District Leaders Need to Own It!
District leaders are charged with many important responsibilities including the need to be an effective legislative advocate for your district and the students it serves. MASA, MoASBO and MARE have designed a workshop for superintendents, assistant superintendents, and chief financial officers, that will give participants the knowledge and confidence to build relationships with those at the state capitol, to advocate for good legislation, and to push back against legislation that is harmful to your districts and public education.
This workshop will address the following topics:
Building relationships with legislators so your voice is effective.
Preparing to make a positive impact when testifying in a committee hearing.
Interpreting the potential impact of bills that are filed and responding to fiscal notes.
Understanding the logistics of the Capitol facility and how a bill becomes law.
