On March 14, 2017, ACSS members marched into the Capitol and met with legislators to discuss important issues affecting managers, supervisors and confidential state employees. Lobby Day was a resounding success with 114 members in attendance. Thanks to the dedicated members who attended, our presence at the Capitol was visible and our voices were clearly heard!
For 17 consecutive years, ACSS members have participated in Lobby Day to deliver the ACSS message in person to Assemblymembers and Senators. This year, we continued to lobby for the resolution of salary compaction and we asked for support of Assembly Bill 52 (Public employees - Orientation and informational programs, written by Jim Cooper, AD 09). Lawmakers listened to our message and acknowledged our concerns.
ACSS thanks the attendees who helped make ACSS Lobby Day 2017 a huge success. Over the years, ACSS has worked hard and progressed to make our presence known, and is now a well-recognized association that lawmakers pay attention to, thanks in part to the efforts of members who attend Lobby Day.
