Day on the Hill
2021 Virtual DOTH Recap
On February 23-24th, The MACAC Government Relations Committee hosted their annual 'Day on the Hill' advocacy event for the first time as a two-day virtual event. The event was a huge success, as we were able to meet with over 50 state senators and representatives over the course of two days to talk about MACAC's legislative priorities (see pdf below) for the year. We had 20 MACAC members volunteer for the event, and we want to thank each of them for their participation! Volunteers shared personal stories from the year highlighting the importance of school counselors and programs like the MN State Grant, which were very impactful with legislators. We look forward to continuing our advocacy work going into the 2022 session!" Below this paragraph, could you add a link to the legislative priorities document that is attached? Or if it can be hyperlinked above where I made the pdf comment, even better!
2022 Day on the Hill
We plan on hosting our 2022 Day on the Hill event in-person at the Capitol in March! It will be an all day (9am-4pm) format, starting with breakfast, guest speakers, and training at a hotel adjacent to the Capitol. Stay tuned, more details to come this fall!
