2016 NYSHFA/NYSCAL Legislative Visitation Day

in Legislative

As previously communicated in our January 4th member mailing, NYSHFA/NYSCAL will be hosting our annual Legislative Visitation Day on Monday, February 29th in Albany to meet with key elected officials and policymakers regarding issues and concerns related to the 2016-2017 Executive Budget.

We will start the day on Monday, February 29th in the Legislative Office Building (Room 211/211A) with a light breakfast and then divide into groups for meetings with legislators and policymakers.  All meetings will be arranged by NYSHFA/NYSCAL and we will e-mail issue briefs and meeting schedules to each participant prior to their arrival in Albany.  NYSHFA/NYSCAL will also hold a conference call approximately one week prior to our Albany visitation day to review discussion issues and meeting logistics.

In addition, we will be hosting a reception for Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan at the Renaissance Albany Hotel, Hyland Library, 2nd Floor, at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 28th.  Please contact Nancy Knapp for additional details.
