Legislative Forums

Posted Date: 11/11/2017

It’s never too early to start mobilizing your membership to “save the date” and to make plans to come to one of Missouri NEA’s regional legislative forums, MNEA’s new format for legislative receptions, or Capitol Action Days in the spring. Check the schedule below for the 2018 MNEA Legislative activity in your area. Start making your list now of those members, administrators and school board members who would enjoy and benefit from a discussion regarding support for public education!

Each of these free events will be a legislative panel or discussion forum and will not be based around a meal. As before, these events provide a chance for members to build relationships with area legislators and support their understanding of MNEA priorities and education issues. Regional planning committees are working with other local leaders to identify at least one member per legislator to attend the event, invite the legislator personally and follow up with further conversation. 

Attend on a date that works for you, 
even if it’s outside your Governance District.
