. This is the best time for your ESA and your colleagues to be a part of shaping the AESA Federal Advocacy Agenda for the year ahead.
At this meeting, attendees receive updates on current topics. This year we will hear about privacy, the Higher Education Act, civil rights, and federal funding. Also, after hearing from experts, the group will discuss and debate the priorities that will set AESA’s federal legislative agenda and shape the work for the year ahead.
Legislative advocacy is an important role of ESA leaders nationwide. That is why AESA’s federal legislative team works for you. Their work is directed by the annual legislative priorities set each year at this important meeting, to reflect the needs and interests of ESAs across the country. Our goal is to have every state represented by one or more ESA leader.
(Please note: There is only one vote per state on the final agenda, but all voices are heard.)
The schedule for these two days also allows attendees time to schedule meetings to meet with your ESA’s elected officials and/or their staff
