Save the date for this year’s Legislative Day, May 1, 2019 … a day filled with networking, meetings with your state legislators, lively industry related topic discussions and much, much more! Don't believe us, hear it from your fellow member Tom Shearer, consultant in soils and compost:
Why You Need to Personally Attend to Represent Your Industry? Your legislators work for you! Tell your elected representative what you think about a certain issue or bill, and to try to get him or her to act on that issue. Let them know the issues and legislation by bill number you wish to discuss. Make sure they know that you are a constituent. While larger institutions use lobbyist most of us do not have that ability, so we need to be the faces and voices that resonate with the legislators. This is your once annual opportunity to speak about your business and industry don’t let it pass you by.
For the past 3 years, ACP’s Legislative Day has remained the preeminent legislative event for California Composters. Legislative Day gives compost producers, equipment manufacturers, Government agencies, landscapers, engineers, scientists and researchers the opportunity to meet and discuss compost issues, regulations and policy directly with their state legislators and staff. Attending Legislative Day is not only a great investment in your business, it also provides you with an opportunity to hear from California's most dynamic political leaders, regulators and the members of ACP and your state association leadership. Importantly, you get to know your legislators, and their staff, and they learn from you, why compost is so important to their constituency! After a rewarding day of business, join your fellow members at a fabulous Capitol Reception. We look forward to collaborating with you at this year's Legislative Day!
