LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!!
Kentucky Psychiatric Medical Association Advocacy Day
March 12, 2013
9:00 – 1:00
The Kentucky Psychiatric Medical Association (KPMA) is hosting Advocacy Day on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 from 9:00 – 1:00 at the Capitol in Frankfort, Kentucky. We will spend the morning meeting with legislators and discussing legislative issues that are important to you, your profession and your patients.
The schedule for the day includes:
- Grassroots Advocacy Training 101
- Update on Key KPMA Legislative Priorities
- Meeting one-on-one (or in small groups) with legislators
Join your colleagues as we educate our legislators about mental health issues in your region. Our presence in Frankfort can make a difference.
This promises to be an exciting day, so don’t miss out! Don’t worry if you’re new to advocacy; we’ll pair you with someone who’s done this before.
As a convenience, we are happy to set up the appointments with your legislator. For KPMA to coordinate the appointments, you must RSVP by February 23, 2013. If you are scheduling your own appointments, an RSVP is necessary by February 26, 2013 so that we have enough promotional materials for distribution.
Watch KPMA’s website, www.kypsych.org and your email for more advocacy materials and information.
If you have any questions, please contact Bonnie Cook, Executive Director at (502) 695-4843.
