The 2018 Special Education Legislative Summit is about ensuring that every educator is empowered to serve all students without limits. This is your profession and it is your government. There is no one more qualified than you to educate our nation’s policymakers about:
This is not your typical “sit and get” event! The summit enables you to take action. First, you will be doing some pre-conference work through conference calls, email groups, etc., in preparation for making your appointments for Hill visits. But don’t worry you will be briefed on the latest proposals under consideration by the Administration and Congress. Then, you will work in collaborative state teams to craft messages and stories that will resonate with policymakers. Most importantly, you will hit the halls of Congress meeting with your Senators and Representative. It is a fast-paced, action-oriented experience that will leave you knowing that YOU can make a difference!
