Hello, advocacy friends and colleagues —

As you know, the Penn State Alumni Association (home of the Penn State Grassroots Network) is hosting the 2016 Public Higher Education Legislative Advocacy Professionals annual conference, to be held July 18-20 in Pennsylvania. We’ve structured a unique two-site conference and built a strong program that will enable you and your colleagues to benefit from the opportunities presented by Pennsylvania’s state capital city, Harrisburg, and then in State College, home of Penn State’s “main campus.”

That’s why I’m writing to you now: To tell you about the conference’s major sessions and to urge you to sign up TODAY at our online registration site.

It’s easy to register at http://alumni-psu.cvent.com/d/rfq1cy

Your best bet is to fly directly into Harrisburg International Airport, as we’ve recommended earlier. On Day 1, in Harrisburg, you’ll take part in the following sessions:

* Supporting higher education when resources are limited and government is divided
Panelists are:
— Mark Singel, former Pennsylvania lieutenant governor and state senator

* Tour of the state Capitol (optional)
Envisioned as a “palace of art,” the Capitol features paintings, stained glass, and furnishings by some of the best artisans of the day. The Capitol was dedicated in 1906 by then-President Teddy Roosevelt, who called it “the handsomest building I ever saw.”

Following the sessions, you’ll enjoy a hosted dinner at a downtown Harrisburg bar/restaurant that offers upscale pub fare and an extensive list of first-rate craft beers. After dinner, you’ll travel to Penn State on a fully-equipped charter bus. During the ride, you’ll hear a wide selection of “Pennsylvania Stories” as told by Irwin Richman, professor emeritus of American studies and history, Penn State Harrisburg

On Day 2 and Day 3, at Penn State’s University Park Campus, you’ll take part in the following sessions:

* Telling your stories: What’s working (or not working) in your advocacy programs?

* Keynote address by Penn State President Eric Barron
— What higher education will look like in 2020, and how advocacy will help
* My biggest advocacy challenge(s) right now

At the end of Day 3’s sessions, we will bus you back to Harrisburg for your return flights out of Harrisburg International Airport.

Per our earlier messages, we’ve reserved a block of rooms on campus at the Nittany Lion Inn. For those of you who might want to arrive in Harrisburg a day early, we’ve also reserved a block of rooms at the Hilton Harrisburg for Sunday night (July 17).
