Association advocacy: ASAE's 2005 Legislative Fly-In.

Scheduled for April 6-7, ASAE's 2005 Legislative Fly-In presents a great opportunity for association advocates to educate members of Congress and their staffs about the critical issues and challenges facing associations. Participants will hear presentations about grassroots education and lobbying best practices from Capitol Advantage, Fairfax, Virginia, and The Showalter Group, Cincinnati, as well as an issues briefing from ASAE public policy staff. Participants will also go to Capitol Hill to meet with their members of Congress.

Through ASAE's Associations Advance America fund, $300 travel scholarships are available for more than 150 members to help offset costs. For more scholarship information, please visit info.asaenet.org/pdf/AA_Day_Application.pdf.

Surrounding the fly-in, ASAE, in conjunction with Capitol Advantage, is launching the second annual Advocacy Week, a unique opportunity for ASAE members unable to attend the fly-in to participate in grassroots advocacy activities. While fly-in attendees are meeting face-to-face with their members of Congress and communicating important association issues, Advocacy Week participants are being asked to support ASAE's efforts on Capitol Hill by sending letters and faxes and making phone calls to their representatives and senators on the same issues.
