This event will bring the FASNY membership, Sectional legislative representatives, FASNY Board Members, FASNY Legislative Committee members and ASA Governmental Affairs representatives together to finalize the Association’s proactive legislative priorities.
As in the past, departments are urged to send their legislative representatives to their county and Sectional meetings prior to the conference. Submissions from Sectionals will be compiled, reviewed and discussed Saturday. A final agenda will be developed and printed for review and ratification on Sunday morning.
The legislative agenda, as adopted, is subject to change from time to time to accommodate changing priorities and a rapidly changing legislative dynamic. FASNY’s Board of Directors has traditionally adopted the agenda ratified by the delegates, but has also added legislative initiatives, subtracted legislative initiatives and identified items that must be opposed. This amendment process will continue and the legislative agenda will always be a working document.
