Please join us to help build awareness of FPA with state legislators in Springfield at our 2018 FPA of Illinois Advocacy Day!  Let’s show our elected officials that we can serve as a resource to them when it comes to financial issues and legislation, and also help build our relationships with those who make decisions that affect our profession and our clients.

 

What does this involve?

 

  • Being in Springfield on Wednesday, April 11th to meet with your legislature.  There will be an early breakfast training session.
  • Reviewing material developed by FPA National.
  • Participating in a training webinar with FPA National Advocacy Director, Karen Nystrom.
  • Meeting with your legislators to share what the FPA is all about (participants will visit legislators in groups so no one is alone).  The meetings are usually held between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm.

FPA National will help make this an easy lift and provide you with training, materials, badges and folders to give to your elected officials. For those who will travel down from the Chicago area the night before we will have a room block at a hotel walkable to the capital. Breakfast is included in the room rate.  You will be responsible for the price of the room and your transportation.
