WPHA Webinar Recording Available - Primary Update, Fall Elections: Advocacy Today, Impacts Public Health Tomorrow


WPHA hosted a webinar this month that included a legislative update from our lobbyists, Hoven Consulting, on the most recent election and the lay of the land moving into the general election in November. The session also included tips and tricks to communicate with your legislators and begin (and continue) building relationships in the short term beginning after the primary results and into the future. The webinar also included an update on the process to determine '19-'20 legislative priorities of WPHA and WALHDAB. Legislative priorities will be shared this fall - stay tuned!
