HELP US ADVANCE OUR PROFESSION BEFORE NEW YORK STATE GOVERNMENT! JOIN US FOR ADVOCACY DAY IN ALBANY ON MAY 8!  

Is there a legislative agenda? Will we be lobbying?

The goal for the day is to educate Legislators on the real impact of associations on the state. The GAC is currently researching and crafting a “New York Associations by the Numbers” document.  This will be our lead-in piece—then we want attendees to talk about their particular association and tout its achievements in order to reinforce the overall message.

The GAC is also currently monitoring legislative activity and if any bills are identified that could impact the work of associations, we would include this information and position in our efforts on May 8, 2018.


Please join us for this important effort!  Whether you are a veteran of the Hill or a first-timer, the ESSAE Government Affairs Committee will have everything prepared for the day.
