What To Expect

CPA’s Lobby Day starts at 8:00 am with a continental breakfast and check-in at the Embassy Suites Hotel.  Beginning promptly at 9:00 am, we will discuss current issues regarding psychology, provide lobbying training, and meet with legislators and their staff in the Capitol.  For your convenience, all of your appointments will be scheduled by CPA staff.  Please dress in business attire, and bring business cards and a camera.

Who Should Attend?

Every CPA member is encouraged to attend.

Legislative Office Visits

Contact with your legislators is an essential step in the advocacy process. By meeting with your State Senators and Assemblymembers, or their staff, you can open the door to an ongoing and productive relationship. In many cases, our members have become a source of expertise that their elected officials refer to for additional information or research. For your convenience, CPA staff will be scheduling all appointments and will match you with the State Legislators from your area. 

Students

The California Psychological Association of Graduate Students is offering travel stipends and networking events to students who are interested in attending LAD.  Please click here to visit the CPAGS page, where you can register for LAD and apply for a travel stipend.

CPA Reimbursements

CPA is unable to reimburse for any travel/ancillary costs incurred to attend Lobby Day.

Travel Arrangements

Lobby Day events will begin Tuesday at 8:00 am and will end at 5:00 pm. Attendees are responsible for their own travel arrangements. Please plan to stay for the entire day. We will be booking appointments with Legislators from 1-5 pm, so please do not book a return flight before 6 pm.
