Sign up for Public Policy Day!

Posted By Benjamin Bullock, Together SC, Monday, January 4, 2016

To our Association Partners and Statewide Nonprofit Leaders:

As the folks who know and care about nonprofit advocacy in South Carolina, SCANPO invites you to join us on January 20th for two terrific opportunities: 

Register for either or both.  

1) SCANPO Public Policy Partners Meeting - Come ready to network and share regarding national and statewide legislative issues impacting nonprofits.  Additionally, SCANPO aims to strengthen its public policy work. We seek your input in expanding our services.  Look for a detailed agenda in January. 

WHEN: 9:30–11:30 a.m. on Wednesday - January 20, 2016 

WHERE: Edens Conference Room, 1221 Main Street, 10th Floor, Columbia (Expect a lovely view of our State House from Columbia’s newest skyscraper!) Park in the 1st level of the garage, parking will be validated.


2)  UWASC / SCANPO Legislative Luncheon - SCANPO is proud to join the United Way Association in sponsoring this gathering. Two years ago when we co-sponsored, we saw nearly 47% of the House members and 28% of the Senate attend this luncheon. This is great time to show the strength of the broader nonprofit community. 

WHEN: Noon-2 p.m. on Wednesday - January 20, 2016 

WHERE: Blatt Building Rm 112, State Capital, Columbia

COST: $15 per person       

Here’s a link to the United Way Association’s webpage detailing their plans for the entire Public Policy Day. This include releasing The Self-Sufficiency Standard for South Carolina 2016. You are invited to attend all events that interest you. 

Register for either or both.  

3) PLUS, we invite your help preparing a 2015 - 2016 Nonprofit Legislative Overview. Jamie Moon and Sue Williams helped us brainstorm this idea. 

Please use this link to share with us bills your organization is working on, including those that passed during the 2015 session and those that you will be working on in 2016.  

Your responses will be compiled into a comprehensive list of all bills that our members support.

We will include: Bill number/name, status, subject area, nonprofit advocates, legislative sponsors, and what they aim to accomplish. We hope this comprehensive list will encourage your coordination and collaboration. 

If the message is meaningful, we may even choose to share with the legislators. We need your responses by Friday, January 8.   

Thank you for giving 10 minutes to submit your information. 

Many thanks to the United Way Association for this opportunity to collaborate.

We so look forward to this convening and hearing from you.  

Happy New Year!
