Join us on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 for County Day at the Capitol. ISAC staff will presenter on the hot issues of the time. From there, the group will travel to the Capitol. The time at the Statehouse will give county officials the opportunity to participate in the lobbying process by meeting with their legislators. Governor Terry Brandstad will address the group at 11:15 am in the Capitol Rotunda.

We have secured space in the Capitol Rotunda for affiliate displays. This will give each individual affiliate the opportunity to introduce legislators and the public to your important roles in the effective administration of county government.

Lunch will be provided for legislators and attending county officials in the Capitol Rotunda West Wing. This will again give county officials the opportunity to interact with legislators.

In order to have the opportunity to meet with your legislators on this day, each county is encouraged to set up meetings with their legislators in advance. Most days of the session are extremely busy and having a scheduled time with your legislators is very important to make the most of your day.

As an ISAC member county it is important to be involved in the legislative session and to work to promote ISAC’s legislative priorities and objectives. County Day at the Capitol will give our members an opportunity to support ISAC’s efforts and work towards improving county government.

It is our hope that by making a concentrated effort to focus on county issues on just one day, that we will have the greatest impact at the Capitol.

Please mark your calendars now for March 8, 2017!
