Legislation Education & Advocacy Day (LEAD) 2022
The Woodlands Inn
Friday, October 14th, 2022

Legislative Education and Advocacy Day (LEAD) is an exciting event that gives attendees an opportunity to learn about advocacy on the local and state level. Presented in partnership with our regional Chambers, LEAD is designed to further attendees knowledge of the legislative process, grassroots advocacy, and major current statewide and national policy initiatives. This event provides attendees with tools and resources to build their advocacy toolbelt and meet their legislators/representatives to discuss topics that are important to them and the communities they serve. Attendees hear from an array of passionate speakers from elected officials, the government sector, community organizers, and advocates.

Be sure to check out the "Event Sessions" under the "Register" button.
