CBA Legislative Workshop

Program Description:
This workshop is geared to understanding the CBA’s legislative policies and procedures and how to be involved in the legislative process.

Invited are the CBA’s legislative liaisons, along with the CBA’s House of Delegates and Board of Governors, the CBA section and committee chairs, who all deal with the ever-important role of advocacy as attorneys and in the CBA. Please feel free to invite other interested section or committee members.

This meeting is held annually at the CBA to help our CBA governance leaders know how our sections and committees can run smoothly, understand how issues get to them to weigh and measure, and how their members can get closer to the activity and the issues at the Capitol.

We are providing a couple of great panels to explain how to process your position request with LPRC chair and CBA President Elect Jonathan Shapiro and with long-time LPRC members Kara Murphy and Vincent Pace.

Our other panel will include Rep. Themis Klarides, House Republican Leader, Sen. Paul Doyle, Senate Judiciary chair, and Bob Shea, CBA lobbyist. They will discuss how legislation really gets done and how CBA members can work with the General Assembly before, during and after the session. And maybe they’ll share any issues they are dealing with. Our panelists have been in Hartford for a number of years, know how their caucuses work and know what’s going on at the Capitol.

We will also be explaining the updated CBA policies, the information you receive from the CBA during the session and how to best communicate with your members.

Pizza will be provided at 6:00 … Workshop will start at 6:30 sharp.
