ILBA PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE // 

Susan Jenkins

ILBA President

 

December 7, 2015

 

Our 2015 Legislative Reception is just a month away: January 15, 2015, Crystal Ballroom, Hoff Building, Boise, 5-7 PM, hosted drinks and hor d'oeuvres. This reception is listed on the Legislative Calendar and is the ILBA opportunity to welcome the legislators to the new session. Last year's reception was well attended so we are hoping for the same this year.

 

The ILBA office will be emailing all ILBA members an invitation.  We will be hand delivering to each member of the 2015 Legislature and key government officials the invite the first week of January. In the meantime, please contact your Representative with a personal invitation to the gala affair whether you are able to attend or not. This is an INVITATION ONLY affair so hopefully you will attend. 

 

Last year, we had our lobbyist hired by the first of November. That was important in setting up the reception. Unfortunately, we spent all our money paying the contract for that lobbyist. We don't have the funds to hire a new one for this year until we acquire more members. Truthfully, we need at least 300 members and we have barely 100. We have over 4000 licensees out there  - 1400 quota licensees. We just have to keep visiting with them to get them to join. Thank you for all your help with this!  

 

Once we have the funds we have an amazing lobbyist/attorney ready to go. 

 

As soon as we receive the updated contact list for the 2015 legislature, we will forward that to you. 

 

Happy Holidays to you.
