Become an Advocacy Liaison
NYSSBA encourages each district to appoint an Advocacy Liaison. This position provides a direct link to NYSSBA’s advocacy efforts. An Advocacy Liaison is important for sharing legislative information with their board and helps lawmakers understand the challenges you face. Give your district a direct contact to all things advocacy!
The perks of being an Advocacy Liaison include:
- First to receive invitations to Lobby Days, In-District Federal Legislative Visits, Board Member Volunteerism
- Newsletter speciﬁcally for Advocacy Liaisons
- Opportunities to attend NYSSBA advocacy events (with Board approval)
- Detailed information to brief your board on NYSSBA advocacy activities
No prior experience is needed, just enthusiasm for advocating on behalf of your board and NYSSBA. Many ﬁrst term board members ﬁnd it’s a great way to learn more about NYSSBA and our legislative priorities. Long-term board members appreciate the opportunity to get involved in a new way.
