|Conservation Lobby Day|
|MLK Day is your day to tell legislators what you expect from them this General Assembly session. Join Virginia Conservation Network, the Garden Club of Virginia, and countless volunteers as we take our conservation priorities to the Capitol on January 17, 2011 at 8:30 a.m.
Whether you discuss energy efficiency, green building, natural resource protection, or other important conservation issues your legislators need to hear from you. Every year General Assembly members learn important information about how to do the right thing for the environment from citizens like you. Not to mention that by taking the time to discuss your position on specific legislation you hold them accountable for their vote.
Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. - be sure to pre-register so you can get to the coffee and snacks as quickly as possible and grab a good seat. Once we get underway at 9:00, you can expect details on priority legislation, tips on how to lobby, and access to a wealth of knowledgeable individuals. You'll also have the opportunity to practice your talking points before taking them to your legislator. The most important moment of the day is when hundreds take the message to the Capitol - I hope you'll join us for this vital day of action.
