DC Trip Info

´╗┐Thursday, June 23rd We will go into Washington DC. Feel free to research museums or locations you would like to attend as you will have free time with your chapters once you meet with your Representatives. Schedule a time to meet with your Congressional Representative(s) as soon as possible. We will provide a template letter for you as well. It is recommended you begin reaching out to them as soon as possible. This meeting benefits your chapter by making connections and relationships while letting your representative know all the great things you are doing for your community and state.

Our goal this year is to provide different trip options for your chapter to choose. You will also be able to select to use your own transportation into Dc on that trip. We will send out sign-up registration for our DC trip in the coming weeks. We will also send out a link for you to let us know when your PAL chapter is meeting with your rep so that a NPAL member can possibly join.

Reminder:

Please do not reach out to The Bolger Center with any questions regarding the actual summit. Direct all questions to the NPAL team- wbennington@nationalpal.org or kmaterazzo@nationalpal.org.
