United Methodist Women 2016 Legislative Event
January 24-26, 2016
We all know very well John Wesley’s conviction that “There is no holiness but social holiness.”
The annual Texas United Methodist Women’s Legislative Event is our most significant opportunity to learn how to pursue social holiness in the arena of public policy and legislation. The 2016 event will be held January 24-26, 2016, at the Holiday Inn Austin Midtown. You may register online at www.texasimpact.org. Hotel information is also available at that site.
Early registration fee for the entire event is $125, due by January 8, 2016. Registration after that day is $140. There are also options for part-time attendance.
2016 Theme: The Way Texas Works
Sessions will include:
The Way Public Policy Works
The Way the Climate Plan Works
The Way the Mental Health System Works
Water Planning System
Humanitarian Response System
Social Service System
Health Care System
Public School System
How the Gospel Works
How Democracy Works
This event is sure to be a singularly informational time, with expert speakers in each of the various topics.
As always, Tuesday morning will be devoted to lobbying visits to the offices of all the legislators. Even if the legislators themselves aren’t in Austin, their very knowledgeable staff will be.
This event is a unique opportunity for United Methodist women in Texas to learn about the issues facing our state and how we can make a difference.
