KPA held its Central Region Social Event this past Wednesday & invited some of our state politicians to attend; this is a great way to establish a relationship with those in office and increase the name recognition and mission of KPA!
Now is a great time to set up a meeting with your state representative and senator before the legislative session starts in January; if you need help setting up the meeting &/or have pictures to share from your meeting with state leaders, please e-mail KPA's Advocacy Committee Chair, Dr. Georgeann Brown (email@example.com).
A special thank you to KPA's Central Region Representative, Dr. Jon Urey! Pictured from left to right: Calvin Jackson, Jillian Carden, Donald Wooldridge, Jon Urey, Sen. Dennis Parrett, and Rep. Jim Duplessis.
