Everyone is welcome! Have you considered attending Leg Con 2023, but are still unsure if this is the right event for you? Here are four reasons why attending is DEFINITELY worthwhile:

  1. You don’t have to be a policy expert or an advocacy rock star to get great benefits from the conference. The Legislation Conference is designed to meet the needs of everyone — from an advocacy novice to a policy wonk. Everyone will find something of value at the conference.
  2. There is so much to learn! You will learn various ways to advocate at the local and state level, you’ll learn about important issues that affect students around the state, and you’ll hear from policymakers in Sacramento.
  3. Meet and network with PTA leaders from across the state. One of the best things about the Legislation Conference is meeting other leaders who care about children and families as much as you do.
  4. Students can attend too! Is your high schooler passionate about a cause, do they want to learn more about how our government works or how they can help make a change? Students are always welcome at the Legislation Conference.
Students must be 18 years-old or accompanied by a parent/guardian or an adult chaperone.

Thank You to Our 2023 Legislation
