School leaders can register to join the Illinois delegation in Washington, D.C. to tell Congress what works in their local school districts. Registration for the February 2-4, 2020 federal advocacy event is available on the NSBA event website.
The Advocacy Institute includes nationally recognized speakers, sessions designed for more interaction rather than only lecture-style presentations, and substantial programming for information and skill-building around public advocacy. The Institute ends with a day on Capitol Hill where attendees have the opportunity to lobby their own members of Congress.
IASB Director of Governmental Relations Susan Hilton encourages interested school board members to contact IASB at 217-528-9688 or 630-629-3776, ext.1135.
Members can also stop by the IASB Legislative Booth next to the main registration area at the Joint Annual Conference (November 22-24) to discuss participation in the federal advocacy program. The booth will be open each day during the Chicago-based Conference’s regular hours in the Grand Ballroom Foyer, Hyatt East Tower.
