Non-Profit Day on the Hill

Last Thursday, USEE partnered with the Utah Nonprofits Association, Utah Afterschool Network, and Utah Cultural Alliance to sponsor "Non-Profit Day on the Hill" where 33 non-profit organizations gathered to speak to legislators.

Marta and I represented USEE and even in the craziness of it all, we were able to speak to 7 different senators and representatives. We made some great contacts with many legislators, some of whom were already familiar with USEE, some were not but were interested to learn more, and a few were very excited about cultivating partnerships with us after the legislative session ends.

The event was featured on the Utah Senate Democrats blog. One of the photos features Marta and I talking to Senator Ben McAdams...well it features the back of our heads at least!
