The Governmental Affairs Committee would like to invite you to participate in one of our 3 Capitol Visit Days in Jefferson City this upcoming legislative session. These days give athletic trainers a chance to provide valuable information about the profession and our legislative concerns to members of the General Assembly. With newly elected legislators in office and the ongoing efforts to update our current practice act, this could be a pivotal time where your involvement could truly make a difference in our profession.
The Governmental Affairs Committee have set aside the following dates:
Tuesday January 24 (Certified Members and Athletic Training Students)
Wednesday February 15 (Certified Members and Athletic Training Students)
Tuesday March 14 (Certified Members)
The time commitment for these events at the Capitol are from 8:00 until noon, although individuals that can stay until 2 pm have a greater opportunity to meet personally with legislators. If you are interested in attending any of these events, please contact Josh Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with more information.
If you do not know who your legislators are, you may use the following web site: http://www.senate.mo.gov/LegisLookup/Default.aspx. Please use your home address when conducting this search and be aware that the legislator database may not be fully updated yet. We look forward to seeing you in Jefferson City in the coming months.
