INTRODUCING: News ATPE Professional Learning This season, join Texas ASCD and make next year the most educational yet! 34 ATPE NEWS ATPE is pleased to announce a new tool that will help make participation in the legislative process easy and effective. Advocacy Central will house important calls to action, bill summaries, and updates from the legislative session. Members who visit Advocacy Central will be automatically matched with their elected officials at the state and federal level and will find easy ways to communicate with them. The site will offer quick links for outreach to decision makers using email, phone calls, letters, and even social media. During the legislative session, use Advocacy Central to track bills that may affect our legislative priorities, see how legislators are voting, and use your voice to influence the legislative process. You'll also find all things related to ATPE at the Capitol, our upcoming lobby day and political involve- ment training event in March. Register, view meeting schedules, and even share your feedback from your legislator visits through a convenient online form. Visit for more information. ADVERTISING
