With your help, we were able to get a positive touch with all 148 legislative offices on one of the busiest days in Lansing. Working together to educate new and returning leaders on our industry, we've cultivated a positive platform for continued discussions with our elected leaders.
By the Numbers:
- 60+ MOGA Members and Partner Association Legislative Day Attendees.
- 134 Meetings with Legislative Offices.
- Over 50 Legislative offices, Department leaders, and heads of partner associations attended the legislative reception.
Members sat down with House and Senate leadership on both sides of the aisle and shared the positive impact of our industry with committee chairs and committee members on nearly a dozen committees in the legislature. The 14 remaining legislative offices that we were not able to meet with still received packets of information, showcasing the positive impact of Michigan’s oil and gas industry on the state and in their communities. This ensured that all 45 new State Representatives, 29 new State Senators, returning legislators, and legislative staffers were provided the benefits of our home state energy production, before joining us for the cocktail reception at the Radisson.
We encourage you to stay connected to your elected officials throughout the year by attending local coffee hours or in-district events in your hometown. These are great opportunities to continue to build real relationships with your elected officials.
Please don't forget to fill out and send in your legislative meeting report forms or simply send us any notes or questions you received during the day.This is important way for us to keep our notes organized and pool our collaborative efforts. If you'd like additional report forms, please email me at [email protected] and I will send more.
Thank you for supporting a Great Industry in a Great State!
