On May 20th NYMHCA will sponsor a lobby day in Albany. This day will provide us with an opportunity for mental health counselors and NYMHCA to become better known among legislators and other governmental officials. This will also be an opportunity for YOU to visit withyour legislators to tell them about your experiences as a mental health counselor and provide them with information provided by our lobbyist.
Our lobbying group, Hinman Straub will be organizing lobby day and will make appoints for you to visit your legislators. First we will meet as a group and our lobbyists will instruct us on how to lobby before heading off to our meetings. The day will run from 9:30 am until 3 pm to allow you plenty of time to get there and get home. We will meet at 9:30 to receive printed materials and our meeting schedules before heading out to 11 am meetings.
The sign-up deadline is April 30th, 2019
