    WISCA Lobby Day: May 8, 2019 in Madison, WI




    Why is WISCA sponsoring Lobby Day 2019?


    1. Educate law makers about our profession: plant seeds for future legislative activities and foster key relationships with decisions makers  


    • Our last Lobby Day was a huge success. Help our profession establish a regular presence at the Capitol to increase acupuncture visibility for legislators similar to what physicians, nurses and physical therapists have in place.
    2. Educate ourselves about the legislative process and how to advocate successfully on behalf of our profession  


    • Get tips about talking with policy makers from our lobbyist during Advocacy 101 and earn NCCAOM Professional Service PDAs.  Gain insights about how the legislative process really works.


    3.  Gather and network with your colleagues from around Wisconsin

    • Last Lobby Day folks came from all over the state and it was energizing to come together to represent our profession! 

     

    What is the plan?


    We'll begin with light breakfast refreshments, hot tea + coffee.  Advocacy 101 Bootcamp with WISCA Lobbyist Ramie Zelenkova to show us how to conduct a successful meet and greet with representatives and staff.  Interested WISCA members will visit their representative while Board and Legislative Committee members meet with key representatives who serve on committees related to healthcare policy.  


    WISCA will also be holding an auricular acupuncture clinic for legislative aids, representatives and Capitol staff and an acupuncture demo on the Rotunda floor.
    *Our programs should end by 1pm, but we will reserve space for our group to debrief and have lunch CIRC at the Concourse Hotel across the street from the Capitol. CIRC offers a hot/cold lunch buffet and salad bar with a selection of items. Individual checks will be made available for each diner. 


    Please plan to join us; we will be seeking volunteers to help staff the acupuncture clinic, publicize the event and to make legislative visits with their representatives. More info coming soon....
