Save The Date! Government Relations Workshop, Feb. 21–22

The 2008 Government Relations Workshop hosted by the International Reading Association on February 21 and 22, 2008 in Washington, D.C., will help you strengthen your advocacy efforts and actively impact legislation such as the reauthorization of NCLB. You will learn about federal and state legislative issues and have the opportunity to communicate directly with your congressional leaders or their staffs.

This is a no-cost workshop for IRA members hosted by IRA's Washington Office and the Government Relations Committee. There is a fully refundable $50.00 registration fee. This fee is refunded upon notification of cancellation or when attending the conference. This policy is to provide an accurate meal count to IRA. We will provide a breakfast and working lunch on Friday. All other related expenses (transportation, lodging, food, and entertainment) are the responsibility of the workshop attendees. Many participants receive funding from their state councils to help pay for costs.

Registrations will be sent out shortly. Feel free to call the IRA Washington office with questions regarding the workshop at 202-624-8800 or contact us at irawash@reading.org. Updates for the Workshop will be posted on the IRA website, http://www.reading.org/. We look forward to seeing you in February 2008.
