This month's MBIA member meeting will will be used for members to join together and meet with your legislator.
Only by educating our legislators can we expect them to enact legislation tht will positvely impact entrepreneurs in Michigan. Make your voices and voices of your clients heard!! Call your legislators' offices now and schedule a 15 minutie meeting.
The purpose of the meeting would be to inform your legislator of the positive impact your program is having in your community. Bring data to back your assertions, and if possible, bring a client company rep with you. Direct testimonial from a client is very powerful.
If your legislator is not available, meeting with office staff members is fine, too. Not sure who your representatives are? You can look them up on the MBIA's advocacy page where the list of all MI legislators is located. The link is HERE.
Once you schedule a meeting, please email the details to MBIA at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. We will maintain a list. If more than one person on our list is scheduled to see the same legislator, we can alert them and ask that they visit together.
Legislative Day will include a briefing for interested legislators and staffers, to which you are all invited. We will also have a table set up in the rotunda where we will provide information to any interested people. More information and details will be provided as the date approaches.
