2019 Day at the Capitol

10 Member Recognition Points Logo

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Monona Terrace/State Capitol, Madison

Join school Board members and administrators from around the state to advocate for your schools!

The one-day event includes morning briefings on the 2019-21 state budget and other pertinent legislation followed by scheduled meetings with legislators and their staff at the Capitol in the afternoon. During the briefings, you’ll hear directly from the new governor’s administration, legislative leaders and the WASB Government Relations team to prepare you for your legislative meetings. Bring specific information about the most pressing issues facing your district to personalize your meetings. 

With the new dynamic of divided government for the first time in a decade, continued strong public support for providing resources to public schools, and competing proposals to reform school funding and boost student achievement, school leaders need to make their voices heard. If you don’t tell your district’s story, who will?
