Wednesday, January 29
New this year, we will start Legislative Day off with a Breakfast and Briefing at the Capital Plaza Hotel from 7-8am. This was specifically asked for by past attendees, so that they could meet before making visits and be briefed on any last-minute advocacy issues or talking point adjustments.
Legislative visits at the State Capitol will follow from 8:30am-2pm, with appointments set for members up by the MDA. This is when dentists and students attend meetings with legislators to communicate our MDA priorities and build a strong name for the MDA, its members and the future of the dental profession. We'll begin at 8am with legislator appointments, which have been made in advance by the MDA office.
There is no cost for any event, but registration is required both to plan accordingly for meals and to make appointments with legislators. RSVP is requested by Monday, January 7.
The 2019 Legislative Session was a huge success for the MDA, in part to the overwhelming response we received from our dental presence in the Capitol. Through our Legislative Day events, it’s important to build these positive relationships and continue branding the MDA as the state oral health authority in the legislative arena. Join us for Legislative Day and help the MDA continue to be strong advocates for the Dental Profession in the Missouri Legislature.
