    Name: Texas LGBT Chambers of Commerce Advocacy Day
    Date: February 20, 2019
    Time: 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM CST
    Event Description:
     
    A Day at the Capitol with the Texas LGBT Chambers of Commerce
     
    Members are invited to participate in the Chamber's inaugural "A Day at the Capitol" advocacy day on Wednesday, February 20th.  Join us in Austin at the Capitol as we make history!  For the first time, the Chamber is partnering with our sister LGBT chambers across the state to visit legislators during the legislative session to talk about issues and legislation that are important to the LGBTQ and Allied business community.  Your voice matters; make YOUR voice heard!
     

     
    This is a tremendous opportunity to:
    • Connect with legislators to talk about issues that impact your business.
    • Engage with other chamber members, chamber leadership and sponsors from across the state.
    Participants will be trained on "How to Talk to Your Legislator" and given information to inform the conversations.  Check out the Texas LGBT Chambers legislative agenda.
