Hometown Legislative Action Week Coming February 1 – 5

Get ready for a Hometown Legislative Action Day like you’ve never experienced before. It’s not just one day — it’s an entire week of virtual content, information, tips and valuable insight into the 2021 legislative session.

To continue to stay safe and help stop the spread of coronavirus, the 2021 Hometown Legislative Action Week will be an ongoing virtual event, with content releasing beginning February 1. City and town officials everywhere can watch all of the videos from a laptop, smartphone or tablet, all through the Municipal Association’s website, www.masc.sc. 

Members of the Municipal Association’s advocacy team will speak about the 2021 Advocacy Initiatives, sharing details on the issues, stakeholders and the benefits of each of the initiatives to cities and towns.  Elected officials at the state and federal level will also share information on important issues that impact cities and towns directly. Finally, the advocacy team will share tips on how officials can talk to legislators to gather support for the advocacy initiatives. The best thing about this? Attendees will be able to access this information anytime.

Registration
Those interested should register online so they will be the first to receive the videos and other content by email each day during the week. There is no fee to register.

Afterward, be sure to follow the legislative content available through the Association’s social media platforms — https://www.facebook.com/MuniAssnSC.StrongSCcities and www.twitter.com/MuniAssnSC.  Updates on the advocacy initiatives will be posted as they move through the legislative process.

Join the Association for Hometown Legislative Action Week beginning on February 1, when Association staff will truly bring the State House dome to all city and town officials’ homes.
