Purpose of Legislative Luncheon

The Public Policy & Legislation Committee and Division Leaders are working diligently to bring together Legislators and Counselors.  This event emerged from a planning idea during the Leadership Development Institute Training in June 2013.  The mission of this event is on building relationships to help legislators learn about the many ways Counselors contribute to the well-being of our communities.  Our goal is to help formalize relationships, as this will help when we seek support for counselor initiatives, locally and nationally.  All counselors wanting to help strengthen our presence, we welcome you to attend.  If you are planning on attending this event, review the foll

  1. Registration is highly encouraged (see above). This will help us plan accordingly.
  2. The goal of event is on building relationships with legislators.
  3. Read tips for advocacy
  4. Come prepared to tell them who you are.  Feel free to share your story of how you have touched the lives of others or the work you do. Keep it concise yet memorable. 
  5. Not sure, how to engage with legislators, there will be an advocacy training on February 18 at Boise State University. Consider, you already have the relationship building skills and we encourage you to use them when visiting with legislators.

If you cannot attend event, you can support the event in other ways. You could encourage others to attend or make a donation. We cannot do this alone and hope to have as many counselors across all the specialties/divisions.

We ask you to consider joining the ICA Public Policy & Legislative committee as we continue to advocate for this great profession!
