Upcoming Legislative Events


Each year, WSNA participates in two events to bring attention to the issues we feel are important and to help legislators understand how our child nutrition programs work.  We refer to each of these events as a "Day on the Hill".  Due to Covid-19, both these events will be held virtually.


WSNA Day on the Hill, Wednesday, January 27, 2021

This WSNA event features a small group, including Mitch Denning, WSNA Liaison, Donna Parsons, WSNA Legislative Committee Chair, and two to three others.  We schedule 15 minute appointments with 20 - 30 Legislators regarding WSNA's legislative priorities and we provide informational handouts, documentation and statistics. 


Alliance of Educational Associations (AEA) Day on the Hill

Although this event is normally just one day, it has been extended to a week since it is virtual.  It will begin on Monday, February 15, 2021.  Selected AEA Board members will kick off the week with a meeting at 9:00 am with Legislators from the four caucuses.  Members from both associations can then make appointments with their legislators anytime from February 15 at 10:00 a.m. through Friday, Feb. 19. If you'd like help in making appointments, please contact Donna Parsons at [email protected]
