Summer Leadership/Legislative Institute
SSWAA hosts a Leadership / Legislative Institute in Washington DC each summer. The focus of this event is Leadership Development for state association board members and persons aspiring to state board office. All SSWAA members are encouraged to participate in this Institute whether they are in a state leadership position or not. A strong legislative component is included which provides updates from key WA/DC officials, key agency personnel and is paired with a visit to Capitol Hill where SSWAA members have the opportunity to speak to their elected members of the US Senate and the US House of Representatives. Members are trained in using the SSWAA legislative talking points and learn to be effective lobbyists both in DC and also when they return to their state following the Institute.
