Legislative Day

2023 Legislative Day 

The public policy team is hard at work with the Spring 2023 legislative term starting up again. We are happy to announce that Legislative Day will be in person this year! The date for Legislative Day will be Tuesday, March 21, 2023 at the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City, MO. I am hoping we will have a great turnout this year for both RDs and RDs2B! The time will be 10 am to 3 pm. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, or spr@eatrightmissouri.org.

The Timeline of Events Include:

Friday, March 17: Attend a one-hour virtual training webinar at 12:00pm with our MOAND policy consultant, Public Policy Panel Member Elect, and State Policy Representative to learn best practices for speaking with legislators. You'll also learn about bills we are actively tracking and the current environment of this legislative session. This webinar will get you prepared to visit with Missouri Legislators and will be recorded for anyone who cannot attend live. We encourage all students, interns, RDNs, and DTRs to attend.

Tuesday, March 21: Meet at the entrance to the Capitol building in Jefferson City, Missouri at 10:00am. After a brief introduction to the day, we will split off into groups to visit all legislator's offices to meet with staff and/or legislators to share MOAND's message and leave behind a flyer.

Thursday, March 23: MOAND's State Policy Representative will send a thank you email to all Missouri legislators. The form to fill out if you are attending is underneath.
