Jan 24 – 26 9:00 – 4:00 pm Zoom with Legislators

CSEA has requested 15-20 minute virtual zoom meetings with targeted Legislators on key tax committees. EAs that register will be placed in meetings with the legislators representing their area (i.e.: Orange County, San Francisco, San Diego). You may attend more than one zoom meeting if space is available.

As soon as the specific meeting day and time are set with the Legislator we will notify the EAs from that area who have registered. An EA seasoned and familiar with legislator meetings will be the lead on each zoom meeting. This is a great opportunity for EAs new to meeting with a Legislator get a taste of advocating for your profession!
