The 2018 Legislative Advocacy Team (LAT) Retreat is scheduled for the evening of Friday, Aug. 17, and all day Saturday, Aug. 18 at the Frank Fickett Scout Training and Service Center in Austin. Programming will center on the Texas CASA legislative priorities and LAT capacity building.

Registration for the 2018 Texas CASA LAT Retreat is initially limited to two people from each program, presumably the LAT Co-Chair(s) and/or Board Member. If you have more than two people who would like to attend, please email Lindsey Lee at llee@texascasa.org to add them to the waitlist. If there are spots available once registration closes, additional guests will be permitted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Registration will close on July 25 or when we reach capacity. If you have any questions about this event or you are interested in starting a LAT, contact Legislative Advocacy Coordinator Jennifer Limas-Mota at jlimas@texascasa.org.
