The Kalamazoo Jaycees will be participating in Model Legislature on Saturday, November 3 at the Capitol Building in Lansing from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Only two organizations in the state are allowed onto the floor of the State House of Representatives, and the Jaycees is one of them! This project has you completely immersed in the workings of the legislative branch – debate bills, make amendments, meet other JCs from around the state!
For those attending, you will want to bring the following: a water bottle (only water – no open food – is allowed in the chamber), a writing implement, camera (if desired), snacks (to be eaten outside the chamber). Dress is business semi-formal (men – collared shirt, slacks and tie, women – blouse and skirt/pants), though men do often wear a suit jacket, shirt and tie.
Pre-registration is required, available on this Michigan Jaycees Eventbrite page. Early-bird registration is $20 + processing fee.
If you have any questions, please contact Blair at president @ kalamazoojaycees.org. Thank you again for taking the opportunity to learn more about the state legislative process!
