Legislative Day

February 4, 2019
Dear WDHA member,
 
WDHA invites you to register for Legislative Day 2019! It will be held on Monday, February 4th in Olympia. This is your opportunity to advocate for issues that support dental hygiene and educate legislators about your profession.
 
If you’re thinking, “Why do I have to register for Legislative Day so much earlier than last year,” you’re not alone! WDHA is adjusting the timing for registration this year so that we maximize your chances for getting an appointment with your legislators. WDHA wants to be ready with participant names the minute legislative offices are ready to make appointments, which is typically right after the holidays. If we have everyone’s information before the holidays, we will be ready!
 
In order to make these appointments for you with your three legislators (or their staff), we ask that you please register by December 21st. Those who wish to attend but are unable to register by December 21st are still welcome to attend Legislative Day; however, please note that we will not be unable to make appointments for you after the December 21st deadline. Here’s the link to register:
 
 
Legislative Day will begin at 9am, with an update on our legislative agenda, including our dental therapy bill. You will be meeting with your legislators throughout the day.
 
Come be a part of this fun and exciting day of advocacy and networking. See you in Olympia!
