3. Issue Papers/Talking Points: NWPPA will work with Morgan Meguire on issue papers and talking points to guide our message while in Washington, DC. We will distribute these to you 2 weeks prior to the trip. We will also hold a webinar with Morgan Meguire to run through the trip agenda, issue papers and talking points the week (week of April 20th) before the trip. We will schedule the webinar the first week of March.
We are excited for this year’s trip. If you participated on the Federal Legislative Outlook webinar in February this will be an exciting year in Washington, D.C. You will be a part of that year when we travel to DC in April to bring our message to Capitol Hill. I look forward to working with all you to make this trip a success.
