We were very disappointed last week to announce that we would not be able to host our annual National Legislative Conference in D.C. in September. While the in-person event is cancelled, there is still important work for us to do together. We have scheduled some virtual meetings for the dates of the conference and trust that we will get excellent participation for these. Additional information about each meeting will be coming. Please reserve these times on your calendar (All times are EDT).
Monday, September 14, 2020
10:30–11:30 a.m. EDT—Accreditation Commission Meeting (Commissioners only)
1:00–4:00 p.m. EDT—Board of Directors Meeting (Board of Directors only)
Tuesday, September 15, 2020
11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. EDT—Board of State Representatives Meeting (state association officers only)
1:00–3:00 p.m. EDT—Legislative Briefing and Guest Presentations (everyone)
In this very important session, the AACS Washington staff will brief attendees on current legislative issues and action items. Invited speakers will present. Two recipients of the American Freedom Award will be recognized for their public service and defense of our First Freedoms. All state leaders and school leaders are encouraged to participate in this meeting!
The AACS has an exceptional full-time staff in Washington, DC, but it is impossible for them to speak for our students and schools effectively without active support from the AACS constituency. Please consider participating in the AACS National Legislative Conference. Your presence will be an encouragement to our staff; but more importantly, you can lend weight to their influence on your behalf!
From the National Legislative Conference, you will gain information about the issues facing our ministries, inspiration and encouragement for your service to the Lord, and an opportunity to visit your Senators and/or Representative.
Together we can influence our political leaders and help to preserve the freedom necessary for the continuance of our ministries.
Don’t miss the National Legislative Conference!
