Annual Legislative Day
Last year's virtual Legislative Day was a tremendous success and had the best turn-out in recent history.
We wanted to continue to again offer a virtual option for those who can't make it to Topeka.
We also heard that it's just not the same if you're not in the Capitol building.
So...we are planning both a virtual component and an in-person component. Members and students can attend one or both events for FREE.
FREE ASHA CEUs provided for both events. Use the Registration buttons below to learn more and register for each event.
KSHA members are invited to attend our annual Legislative Day in Topeka. At this event, KSHA members earn free CEUs by attending sessions about current legislative priorities and learn about ways to become involved in the legislative process. Legislative Day also provides an opportunity for members to meet with their legislators and begin to form relationships with those who represent our members at the State level.
Prior to attending Legislative Day, it is strongly suggested that you contact your legislator and request an individual meeting if you are going to be in Topeka. If not, please consider following up with a phone call, e-mail or a visit at the local level when they are in your district.
This is an exciting opportunity for KSHA members to communicate with legislators on issues of importance to our profession and to the patients and clients that we serve. Typically the format is the following:
Directions to the Capitol & Parking Information
- Meet at the Capitol Visitor Center Auditorium before 9:30 am to get materials relevant to the day’s activities: times of pertinent legislative sessions of interest, strategies to interact with legislators, talking points when engaging with legislators; Typically there are remarks from our Capitol Strategies lobbyist regarding issues of interest and/or a legislator may be invited to discuss current issues before the legislature
- Lunch (in the Capitol) and invitees include legislators; often legislators will make short remarks and answer questions from members
- Meetings with individual legislators and/or attending House and/or Senate sessions; there may be presentations by individual legislators to the group depending on what issues are being covered
