New York State Rural Advocates have set November 8 for their Annual Meeting and Policy Discussion at the Otesaga Hotel in Cooperstown.
This year’s meeting is timed to allow for a discussion of critically important November 6th state and federal elections. The U.S. House of Representatives and the New York State Senate both may face a change in the majority party. There is even a chance that the U.S. Senate could flip. A change of the party in control of any or all of those bodies will result in new Legislative leadership, new committee chairs and a change in status for your elected representative. This will be our first chance to discuss what any changes might mean.
The annual fall meeting is where the Rural Advocates begins building our state legislative agenda for the 2019 session of the New York State Legislature. In order to better understand the needs of rural New York, Advocates solicits input from members, colleagues and peers and we use that information to craft our initial legislative agenda.
Please join us in Cooperstown for this important gathering. Find the registration and hotel details here NYSRA annual meeting notice 2018
