In preparation for NYSSFA’s Advocacy Day in early March, chapter leaders are asked by the State Association to coordinate the participation of their chapter members. Both individual and group registration is available.

To prepare for Advocacy Day and learn about SFA's legislative priorities and the latest legislative and State political developments from our government affairs representatives at Hinman Straub, a Legislative Update webinar is scheduled a week or so before Advocacy Day. Attendance is recommended even if not attending Advocacy Day to become aware of these legislative priorities.

All Advocacy Day participants are briefed again at Advocacy Day, before meeting with local lawmakers. Talking points and position papers are also provided and appointments are made for chapters.
