January 31 — Legislative Luncheon

Indiana Legislators Discuss Association-Related Issues that Could Affect Your Organization

January marks the beginning of a new legislative session in Indiana, and there are several issues that could directly affect your organization. This is your chance to ask your state leaders policy questions and share the issues that are important to you as an association professional.

New this year, we’ll host a bonus workshop immediately prior to the luncheon and panel to better explain how the lobbying and advocacy process works and what the government affairs committee does for you on behalf of ISAE, give you tips on how to communicate effectively with your legislator, and provide an overview of hot topics and suggestions for what to be asking the panel.
