OLYMPIA ADVOCACY DAYS
United Ways of the Pacific Northwest is partnering with Washington 211 on Advocacy Day in Olympia, February 11 (National 211 Day). Our lobby teams will meet for last-minute preparations and information sharing in the Joel Pritchard Building, beginning at 7:30 am. We will claim a table or two in the café. This will be an opportunity to go over meetings and assign Washington 211 board members to attend Legislative meetings with the different regional call centers. We also will schedule time around lunch to regroup and discuss how it is going. Your full engagement in this day will play an important role in supporting our request for $222,000 in critical equipment and infrastructure upgrades. Key to the success of this day are legislator meetings. Call center managers should start arranging meetings now with their Legislators for that day. Here is a spreadsheet of legislator information you can use to contact and track your scheduled meetings. If you need help or guidance on how to do this, contact Paul Knox. United Ways of the Pacific Northwest and Washington 211 are sponsors of the Washington Non-Profits reception on the evening of February 11 at the Governor's Mansion. Register for our Reception here.
