The Texas State Advocacy Committee met in Dallas June 4th to begin planning for the upcoming 2015 legislative session. This dedicated group of volunteers serves as the advisory board to Texas volunteers and staff on public policy issues. The committee establishes public advocacy priorities each year, while actively participating in grassroots and lobbying activities including coordinating You’re the Cure recruitment at local events, providing public testimony at committee hearings and delegation meetings, participating in federal and state in-district meetings and spreading the mission and message of the American Heart Association.
The State Advocacy Committee is made up of a diverse membership from around the state. We had great representation at our recent meeting including members from Abilene, Lubbock, D/FW, Austin, Houston, El Paso, and Galveston. And congratulations to 2014-2015 Chair Suzanne Lozano of San Antonio, who will lead this great committee into the next legislative session!
