*New* Brown Bag Workshops

In April we will be offering a series of "Legislature 201" workshops for the public. Bring your lunch and join us!

  • Floor Sessions and Orders of the Day: Tuesday, April 7th, 12 noon-1 p.m.
    Learn about what takes place on session days in the House and Senate chambers (and why it's important); understand some of the rules and traditions governing floor proceedings; become comfortable interpreting and following the agendas.
  • Odd Things Happen! : Thursday, April 9th, 12 noon-1 p.m.
    You may know "how a bill becomes a law," but you'll be surprised by some of the unusual (and sometimes bewildering) things that have been known to happen at the Legislature.
  • Conference Committees: Thursday, April 16th, 12 noon-1 p.m.
    Understanding this end-of-session process can be a challenge for everyone. We'll offer some tips, information, and strategies that can help.

 

"We the Powerful" Workshops

You can still participate in our standard "We the Powerful" workshop -- just call or email to schedule a time! The presentation includes: understanding the legislative process, delivering effective testimony, using the Legislature's website, and an overview of other resources. Let us know your level of knowledge and experience, and we will do our best to tailor the workshop accordingly.
