Join us as we travel to the Capitol in Austin to meet our legislators, share our legislative agendas with them and hear an update on what they are working on.
The trip is an overnight trip that will begin with a reception on Wednesday night that all of our state legislators have been invited to, breakfast on Thursday morning (with a speaker) and a group session with our legislators at the Capitol in the Historic Supreme Court room. We'll also be recognized by the Senate or the House from the Floor and can watch our representatives in action.
We'll wrap up with lunch and, if enough are interested, have a guided tour of the Texas State Cemetery! The guides tell a lot of Texas history and the cemetery includes some of the Founding Fathers of Texas like Stephen F Austin as well as other Texas legends such as Tom Landry and Trammel Crow!
A smaller group is going down on Feb 26 and will be meeting with each legislator individually on Wednesday, Feb 27, during the day. If you are interested in participating in that please contact Michael directly for more information.
Sponsorships are available. Contact Michael for more information.
Each member attending is responsible for making their own reservations. We have a block of rooms held at the Hilton Garden Inn Austin Downtown/Convention Center. The block is held with the negotiated price until February 4th.
