OK-SAFE, Inc. –  Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process Training classes.

Barring the end of the world, 2013 will soon be upon us.  With it comes the beginning of another Oklahoma Legislative session.

That means it is also time for OK-SAFE’s annual Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process training classes so mark you calendars.

Upcoming events

OK-SAFE’s training classes are in-depth, un-sissified working sessions.

Classes are broken up into three parts, starting with the basics for beginners, moving on to how and when to lobby, then to the more advanced subjects of how to read a bill with understanding, understanding political doublespeak, and who and what is influencing legislation in Oklahoma.

Attendees will come out of this class better informed, more confident in their ability to communicate with elected officials, better able to track and follow legislation, and more informed about the potential impact proposed legislation could have on this state.

The following dates, times and locations have been confirmed for three training classes.  Class details will be noted in our next newsletter.
