As a membership organization, we at FPWA orient our advocacy efforts based on the priorities, ideas and concerns of our member organizations. We depend on guidance, information and participation from our members as we work in Albany and at City Hall to respond to vulnerability and advance opportunity. On the 15th, we'll review the recent history of policy, funding and support for the needs of low-income New Yorkers, and look ahead to out how 2013 might play out. We’ll have presentations by FPWA's policy staff and our Albany lobbyists, as well as opportunities for staff at FPWA member agencies to offer input. We'll share trends and concerns, outline some advocacy strategies, and refine our legislative priorities for 2013.

Breakfast will be available at 8:30 am, and our facilitated conversation will begin promptly at 9 am. All interested staff at FPWA Member Agencies are welcome.

Watch this space for more details.
