Legislative weekend set for Januaryby anonymous on November 26, 2012
Council 2’s Legislative Weekend — a popular once-a-year event on the union’s calendar — will be held from January 24 through 26 next year.
During the weekend, members tour the Capitol where they can see legislators at work.
They can also set up appointments to meet with their representatives and discuss issues of importance with them.
Members are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
“I strongly encourage you to consider these meetings,” says Council 2 Deputy Director Pat Thompson.
“Those who have participated in past years found them very worthwhile.
“There is a great benefit to reminding legislators that real, live constituents can and do make their way to Olympia,”
The Council 2 Executive Board, the Women’s Action Committee and the Legislative Committee will hold meetings during the weekend.
