FOOD:  We are NOT serving breakfast, but an excellent coffee shop, Three Story Coffee, is located right next to The Millbottom if you would like to purchase coffee or snacks on your own.  After some instruction, we will divide into groups and walk to the Missouri State Capitol (approximately 2-3 blocks). Pizza will be served for lunch at The Millbottom following legislator meetings.

AGENDA:

7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. – MPTA Lobby Day Kick-off, Meet at The Millbottom located at 400 W Main St, Jefferson City, MO 65101

 

8:00 a.m.  – 8:15 a.m. – Walk to the Capitol, go through security check point at North or South entrances, and gather in the First Floor Rotunda.  Guides will be in the group to help you.  Firearms or other weapons are not allowed.  A beverage is allowed in your purse or hand, but all bags and pockets will be checked and/or emptied. 

 

8:15 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. – Welcome Message from legislators, First Floor Rotunda

 

8:30 a.m. –10:00 a.m. –  Attendees will go with their group (each with a PT or PTA leader) to make legislative visits.  You are encouraged to walk the halls, meet with legislators, and distribute MPTA information to legislative offices.  

 

10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. -  Exit the Capitol through any door and meet back at The Millbottom to discuss visits.  Pizza will be served.  CE Certificates will be distributed to PTs and PTAs who attend.

Lobby Day is the perfect opportunity to meet legislators face to face, thank them for their past support of the physical therapy industry, and educate them on the critical role PTs and PTAs play in Missouri’s healthcare system.   We also encourage you to download the APTA Action App to your mobile device from the app store prior to Lobby Day.

 

PLEASE WATCH YOUR E-MAIL FOR INFORMATION ON OUR LEGISLATIVE EFFORTS FOR THIS SESSION.  THE STATUS OF BILLS CAN CHANGE QUICKLY.  We will use this time in the Capitol to build relationships and ensure the physical therapy profession is protected and growing.  We need to show PTs, PTAs, and students are aware that legislators CAN and DO influence your practice.  Please join us to show your support!

 

A strong presence at Lobby Day means a stronger voice in legislative matters that influence our practice and our patients.  You can make a difference by making this trip to Jefferson City!

 

We look forward to seeing you on February 26th!
