Beginning at 10:30 am
MDA Legislative Advocacy Day
Mackinac Room, Anderson House Office Building, 124 N. Capitol Ave., Lansing, MI 48933
MDA’s Annual Lansing Day is an opportunity for members to meet their state legislators, to learn and share MDA’s current legislative concerns, and to become even more effective advocates on behalf of our communities at the State Capitol. With the 2017-18 Legislative session just beginning and a minimum of 42 freshmen State Representatives in the House (out of 110 seats), member participation at MDA’s 2017 Lansing Day is especially critical.
