It’s time to talk
Tally Days 2019!
We are thrilled that you are as excited as We are to attend Tally Days. It is such a good event.
Day One: The first night typically includes some welcome activities and a chance to mingle with other members from other clubs.
Day Two: The next day starts early and is an information packed speaker jam where one expert speaker after another help us to better understand what is at stake this legislative session and beyond.
Day Three: Armed with all that great information the DWCF turns us loose on the capitol to meet with our legislators (I have started contacting them to try and arrange a meeting). We are able to sit in on sessions in the FL Senate and the FL House of Representatives and see our democracy in action. Then we convene in the rotunda of the capitol building for a DWCF press conference at noon. Signs are welcome at the press conference but I recommend it be something you can fold and unfold so you are able to use it when needed but not be prohibited from other things because of it.
This is what you need to do if you are interested in attending:
Step 1: Book your room. This needs to be done by Feb 16th and when you call the Days in I have attached Daniel’s instructions below:
