Dear Delegates:

The 2022 CCBA Legislative Week is March 28-31!
This year we are again asking you to volunteer to join us virtually – a sign up link is below – as we meet with members of the State Assembly and State Senate and their staff.

For those of you who have never attended before, Legislative Week provides an opportunity for us to meet with legislative representatives and staff about our resolutions that are on our legislative agenda and other proposed bills from legislators and organizations we support.  It is an opportunity to participate in the legislative process and meet your representatives.

While we prefer to have our meetings in person, given the current situation with the pandemic, we are proceeding with virtual meetings. However, since we are doing our meetings virtually, there is no fee to participate and there will be more opportunities to speak to more legislators.  Furthermore, those delegates who may never have had the opportunity to participate in the past, may find it easier to do in a virtual format.

We are asking our delegates to give a minimum of 15 minutes to meet with a legislator in service to helping our resolutions become law during any open time during the week of March 28, 2022-March 31, 2022 (the Legislature will be observing Cesar Chavez Day on April 1st).  On Monday, March 28, 2022, we will hold a virtual orientation before our meetings in order to train our volunteers on how to handle these meetings.  If you have 15 minutes of your time (or more!) to volunteer to help, please click on registration link below.

WHEN

Orientation: March 28, 2022 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (recording available by request)

Talk on State of the Judiciary by Cory Jasperson at 10 a.m.

REGISTRATION

You can access the registration form HERE.

Thank you.
