People with Disabilities Awareness Day
The countdown clock has begun and we are less than a week away from closing pre-registration. Tuesday, March 29th at 5 p.m. is the end of pre-registration. Do you really want to stand in line while the volunteers look up your legislators or do you want to have that taken care of before you arrive? Do you want us to have the right amount of programs in the format you need? If so, pre-register! It is a good thing to do.
Are you planning to wear green? If so, good! We will stand out to the legislators and we will be identifiable to each other. All the cool people will be wearing green!
