Sacramento Advocacy

State CapitolEach year TCEC spends two days in Sacramento, first meeting with the leading Legislative Advocates and Lobbyists from the organizations to which we belong, producing a Position Paper, and then meeting with legislators who represent our region, in addition to representatives from the Assembly Speakers office, Education committees, and the Governor's office. Following our meetings we debrief, and the information we gather is shared with our members and with the Legislative Advocates who participate in our event. We are a well-known and respected organization at the Capitol, and among the organizations which we represent.
