Who develops the legislative program?
Every 365游戏平台 member is encouraged to participate in the development of our legislative program. 每年, the elected 365游戏平台 state president and Board of Directors appoint 20 members to serve staggered, two-year terms on the Legislative Committee, which meets annually (typically in April).
The committee reviews the previous year’s legislative program, discussing the importance and continued relevance of each position, and considers member input gathered by the 365游戏平台 Governmental Relations staff. The committee then makes recommendations on positions to be considered by the 365游戏平台 House of Delegates (HOD). When the HOD meets at the annual 365游戏平台 Summit, member-delegates vote on committee recommendations to amend, 再采纳, or allow positions to expire. 365游戏平台 members can also submit proposed positions or amendments for consideration during the HOD meeting.
