Legislative Day 2020 – January 28 & 29
The Legislative Reception and Legislative Day are for members only, including dentists, students and associate (dental team) members. We’re looking forward to this year, which features changes based on your feedback and suggestions for improvement! If you have questions, please contact Shantel Smith.
Tuesday, January 28
- Events begin Tuesday evening, January 28 with the Legislative Reception and Dinner. The reception is for all dentists, students and legislators at The Millbottom. The reception begins at 5pm. Enjoy cocktails while mingling and becoming better acquainted in a relaxed environment before Legislative Day. Dinner will be served at 6:30pm.
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 8:30am with legislator appointments, which have been made in advance by the MDA office.
