Every year, WACAC members come together to be trained and to execute advocacy efforts in Sacramento and/or Nevada in a meaningful and rewarding way. Sponsored by the Government Relations Committee, the conference focuses on understanding and taking action on current legislative issues in Sacramento and Washington DC that impact the work of association members. After legislative briefings and sessions on training to be a lobbyist, WACAC members share their higher education priorities, expertise, and personal stories in small group lobbying teams with elected officials in the State Capitol.
If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Greene, WACAC Government Relations Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
