Location: The Union Club, 8 Park St, Boston, MA 02108
This exciting afternoon will start at 12:30pm by gathering together at the Union Club before heading to the State House. We will hear from MassAFP leaders and our government relations team from Rasky Partners to provide an overview of the afternoon's activities, insight into pressing legislative issues and bills to address with legislators that day, and share helpful advocacy tips.
The preparation time will also include an orientation with guidance on how to focus talking points on current issues, the use of personal anecdotes and how to convey personal medical expertise. We'll then head over to the State House visits - all meetings will be scheduled for the attendees.
Union Club Appropriate Dress and Club Policies:
"Business Casual" (shirts with collar, dress slacks and non-athletic shoes for men and equivalent attire for women) is the minimum standard dress in the club house. Athletic attire is never appropriate. Specific attire may be required for special club events.
Cellular telephones may not be used in any area where other members or guests may hear or observe the conversation. If you find it necessary to use one, you may use the Governor Andrew Room or the phone booths located on the first floor.
