Conservation Lobby Day

February 1 @ 8:00 am 4:30 pm

Every year, Virginia Conservation Network‘s 150+ environmental organizations come together to ensure a strong conservation voice is heard during the legislative session. Volunteer advocates join professional staff to meet with state legislators and encourage them to support strong conservation policy.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty and public health concerns raised by the COVID pandemic, this year’s Lobby day is a hybrid event. VCN will be scheduling virtual-only meetings. If you would like to meet with your legislator in person, please schedule those yourself. If you will be in-person that day, VCN is excited to offer breakfast and hardcopies of our materials for you while we enjoy the kickoff programming together. We are finalizing the format of this event as we approach our first hybrid Conservation Lobby Day and appreciate your patience as slight changes in the schedule may occur.


Agenda

8:00-9:00 am – Kickoff! This will happen over Zoom. Please join us from the comfort of your own homes or limited in-person viewing options in Richmond, VA.

4:00-4:30 – Wrap up! Let’s recap a day well spent and plan our next steps. This will happen over Zoom with no in-person watch party option from VCN.

Throughout the day – If you are joining in a VCN schedule virtual meeting with your legislator, we will be in touch with the details as your meetings are scheduled.
