Please join us for lunch on Wednesday, March 6 to hear State Senator (and former HWL President) Laura Thielen share insights on "What's Happening in the Legislature" and strategies on how to effectively participate in the Legislature's work. Laura has served as a member of the Kailua neighborhood Board, Chair of the Dept of Land and Natural Resources, and Director of the State Office of Planning, She has initiated new ways to improve communications between legislators and the public, including using her Facebook Page to provide alerts regarding important bills and hearings, a Blog to provide short analyses on the substance of bills, amendments, next steps and how to weigh in, and a Website to provide resources for people who want to get involved in the Legislature's work. Join us to discuss what's going on at the Leg and how you can participate more effectively.
