Legislative Day

Event Details

Join ACEC WI for the seventh annual Legislative Day. ACEC WI remains committed to the strategic goal of enhancing our advocacy efforts and Legislative Day is an opportunity for members to stay engaged and discover what political involvement really is.

At Legislative Day, you will learn what advocacy means to ACEC WI and the engineering profession. Speakers will cover both state and national issues to look at how the 2018 election changed the political landscape. Attendees will learn about the upcoming state biennial budget and issues facing engineering. Following a briefing on the state budget, members will have the opportunity to meet with State Representatives and Senators to
introduce/reintroduce themselves and advocate for our priority issues.

After the official event, all attendees are invited to attend our Advocacy Happy Hour in Madison to network and continue the discussions. It will be held at Cooper Tavern, 20 W. Mifflin, Madison. This is less than a five minutes walk from the venue and capitol.
