Government Relations

Government Relations Advocacy Committee (GRAC) members chart the course of WACAC’s work in state and federal legislative advocacy. Members develop policy priorities and goals, help determine the positions we take on bills and other legislative proposals, meet with elected officials, and keep the membership apprised of important legislative issues related to higher education, counseling and student access to college. A sampling of committee projects includes:

  • Visiting state and federal elected officials’ offices
  • Planning the State Legislative Conference in Sacramento in February
  • Educating members on legislative issues that directly impact our work
  • Organizing workshops/trainings/webinars at WACAC conferences
  • Collaborating and advising our lobbyist on proposed legislation
  • Attending the National Legislative Conference in Washington, DC
  • Serving on NACAC’s Government Relations Committee
