Legislative Rally Day: Wednesday, February 22 in Austin, Texas
Rally Day is an advocacy event hosted at the Texas State Capitol in Austin. It is a valuable opportunity for association members to talk with our local legislators and key policy staff face-to-face. Briefing materials will be provided on legislative issues and pending legislation that is important to the Texas residential construction, remodeling and development industry.
The day’s events include a Welcome Ceremony with keynote speaker Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar, scheduled meetings with your local legislators and a GHBA-provided lunch with delegation members. Rally Day is conducted every other year when the Texas Legislature is in session.
After you register for Rally Day, you will be assigned to a team with a team captain. On the morning of Rally Day, you will be given your team assignment so that you can identify your team members either on the bus or once in Austin. You will also receive biographical and district information for individual state legislators, a map of the Capitol, talking points for your meetings and background information on legislation and issues on which you and your team will brief our delegation members.
Your participation in meetings with the GHBA delegation is critical. They need to hear directly from you on issues affecting your business and our industry in their districts and throughout the state.
This event won’t take place again until 2019, so don’t miss it!
The Government Affairs Committee will meet on February 9 at 2 pm at the GHBA. We will discuss GHBA and TAB priority issues and legislation that will impact the homebuilding industry during the legislative session. This information will serve as the background for our talking points for our legislative visits on Rally Day. All members are encouraged to attend.
Registration Deadline: February 3
Cost: $35/member (includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and transportation to and from Austin)
