The 2019 Public Policy Day will be held on Wednesday, February 20. Registration will begin at 7:45 am in the Lobby of 1122 Lady Street in Columbia, SC, followed by an optional Advocacy Breakfast and Training from 8:00 - 9:00 am. All-day parking is available in the Lady Street lot next to the building. 1122 Lady Street is across the street from the State House and will serve as our "home base" for the day.

Legislative appointments will take place throughout the day at the State House. From 11:30 am - 2:00 pm, we will host our annual Legislative Luncheon in the Blatt Building, Room 112. This is a great opportunity to interact with your legislators and their staffers.

Please note that we will not host the Common Good Awards this year.
