What to Expect
Jim Stern Legislative Day was developed to arm you with the information, training and confidence you need to effectively meet with Legislators or their staff and speak to the issues important to you, your clients, and your business.
CSEA coordinates appointments with representatives from both Senate and Assembly offices for each participant who registers to attend. It’s very important to register by December 7, 2018 so we can try to get you an appointment with your legislator.
Whether you have participated in Jim Stern Legislative Day in the past or this is your first time we will ensure you are prepared to promote the Enrolled Agent profession:
The day will begin at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento, where you can enjoy breakfast and pick up your packet, which will include legislator details, appointment times, and other Members in your region who will be attending meetings with you.
We will gather at the State Capitol for presentations from various CSEA leaders and experts. It is anticipated that the program will include insight from M. David Ruff, Chief Consultant to the Assembly’s Committee on Revenue and Taxation, and Colin Grinnell, Consultant to the Committee on Senate Governance and Finance. CSEA leaders will also cover advocacy Issues and you will be provided with talking points that you can use during your visit with legislative offices later that day. We will also take you through a practice visit to prepare you for your meetings.
Once the morning presentation ends you will assemble in groups by region to visit the legislative offices where you will introduce yourself, explain what EAs do, discuss any legislative concerns, lobby for CSEA’s positions, and offer yourself as a resource to policymakers as tax experts.
The day will conclude back at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento with a debriefing and reception where participants will share what they learned during their legislative visits and plan any follow-up that needs to occur.
This is a prestigious and interesting event you will not want to miss - in fact, 100% of last year’s participants stated that they would encourage all Members to join them at Jim Stern Legislative Day.
