The Washington Acupuncture and Eastern Medicine Association invites you to participate in our
Acupuncture and Eastern Medicine Day
Monday, February 3, 2020
at our State Capitol in Olympia, WA!
Time to Call and Set Up Appointments with Your Local Legislators!
The legislative session starts on January 13th, 2020. We are contacting legislators early this year because our legislative day is less than a month away! As a reminder, WA State has a biennial legislature, and this will be the 60-day “short session” of the legislature where they will be working on the Supplemental Budget.
Please contact your legislators and set up a meeting on February 3, 2020 ASAP as legislators schedules fill up quickly, especially in a short session!
Schedule appointments to begin after 8:00AM so that attendees can participate in the morning advocacy training activities. Most appointments can be scheduled via an email request, although it is often better to call the legislator's office directly. Please give the legislative assistants my phone number for the day if there are schedule changes at 360-280-6142.
Here is a link to find out who your state legislators are: Please use your http://app.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder home address and not your business location as they want to meet with their constituents in their districts.
Important!! Once you've made appointments, please send Leslie Emerick your appointment times at firstname.lastname@example.org . We have some legislative districts that overlap between constituents and I try to consolidate those meetings. All meetings will be on the master agenda for the day subject to change.

Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress semi-formally for meetings. It may be cold so dress appropriately for the weather. This may look overwhelming to the new participants, but don’t worry!
