Legislative Conference

January 28-29, 2024

On Jan. 28, the WASA • WSSDA • WASBO Legislative Conference is your opportunity to hear updates on our shared legislative priorities, the current education budget and policy landscape, and how to effectively advocate for our collective needs.

Then, on Jan. 29, we’ll take what we learned at the conference and apply it in pre-arranged meetings with legislators and their staff in Olympia. That day is referred to as Day on the Hill.

Sunday, January 28, 2024:  1–6 p.m.
South Puget Sound Community College Performing Arts Center

Monday, January 29, 2024: throughout the day
Capitol Campus in Olympia
Participants should call or email their legislator’s office well in advance to schedule either an in-person meeting or video conference. Be prepared to state the purpose of the meeting and the names of those who will be in attendance.
