Together Georgia Day at
March 10, 2015
Many thanks to all who participated in
our inaugural Together Georgia Day at the Capitol.
Although legislators were not in session on Tuesday, many were attending
committee meetings. Providers had opportunity to visit with several
legislators who influence child welfare interests, i.e. Rep. Andrew
Welch (Chaired the House Study Committee on Licensing and Inspection
of Child Welfare Providers), Rep. Katie Dempsey (Chair
Appropriations Subcommittee and member of Health & Human Services
Committee), Rep. Tom Weldon (Chair Juvenile Justice Committee), and
Rep. Allen Peake (Vice-Chair of Ways and Means Committee and member
of Health & Human Services Committee). Invitations including a full
list of Together Georgia members were delivered to all legislators.
It is helpful for legislators to recognize private provider agencies
that are in their district. We encourage TG members and all providers to continue to
nurture relationships at your local level - good work!
