Legislative Day 2017

3rd Annual KDA Legislative Day

State House Annex Room 111
March 8, 2017
8:30am – 1:30pm

Congratulations on being an active and engaged member of organized dentistry by attending KDA Legislative Day in Frankfort! We are happy you are here. KDA works throughout the year to ensure organized dentistry is well represented in both Frankfort and Washington, D.C. But, once in a while it’s important to show we can turn out an army of working dentists willing to take time out of their busy practice to tell their story. More importantly, it’s always good for legislators to hear that story directly from you. Dental students, we want you, too!

The itinerary for the day is set forth below:

9:30 – 10:15 am
Welcome & Overview
Recognition of Distinguished Guests Rick Whitehouse, KDA Executive Director
Greetings Dr. Bill Collins, KDA President
Legislative 101 Libby Milligan, MSS Director of Client Svcs
KDA Policy Update Dr. David Narramore, Govt Affairs Chair
Medicaid Update Dr. Garth Bobrowski, Medicaid TAC Chair
PAC 101 Dr. Sharon Turner, KDPAC Chair
Q & A

10:15 – 11:30 am
Attendees meet with their legislators.

11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Lunch w/ legislators in Room 111

NOTE: Immediately following lunch, please join us in the House and Senate Chambers as
Dr. Bill Collins receives recognition for his service to the profession and organized dentistry.

In advance of this event, please schedule a meeting with your legislators between 10:15 – 11:30am and invite them to the luncheon that takes place at 11:30am. If you don’t know your legislator, this is a great time to meet them and tell them about organized dentistry.

I am also including the link to a folder containing your KDA Legislative Day 2017 Toolkit. The toolkit includes items related to the legislature, key issues impacting organized dentistry, and other useful information you need to review in advance of the event. Click here (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zc650melvionupn/AADPs74Qw1DGgYgXJ5uC3h3Pa?dl=0) for the toolkit. You may print and distribute these files to members attending our event. They are intended for information only and are not to be reproduced or used for any other purposes. I hope you find these items helpful.
Remember, we hired these people on Election Day to work for us. This is our chance to tell them what we expect them to do!
Thank you again for taking part in this very important event for Kentucky dentists! I look forward to seeing you on March 8th in Frankfort. KDA Executive Director, Rick Whitehouse
