Focus Day is approaching, and we need you there.

Hello, all.  My name is David Berg, and I am co-Chair of the 2013 Focus Day.

Focus Day is rapidly approaching, and we need you there.  We'll be working with the RLCs to help get our message out to each and every local unit, and each and every member.  We've got a great team, but we can't do it without your help.

Make plans to join us in Olympia on January 24, 2013.  Please let your friends and neighbors know about Focus Day.  Do you see other parents at the bus stop, or while dropping off your kids in the morning, or picking them up in the afternoon?  Invite them to join you.   Do you have a PTA meeting this week?  Ask how your local unit plans to participate.

We'll be sharing information about Focus Day very regularly between now and the event.  Keep up with the latest updates on our new Focus Day blog,  You can also follow us on Twitter -- @FocusDay2013.  Be sure to check out the video we just posted, including an important message from Rep. Ross Hunter about the importance of this year's Focus Day.

Even if you can't be there in person, we're making plans to maximize virtual participation in this essential advocacy event.  We want EVERYONE to be able to participate in some way.  We are 140,000+ members strong.  This is the time to show it.

Have you attended a previous Focus Day?  We want you to come back.  Will this be your first Focus Day?  We'll have step by step guides available -- everything from how to get there and where to park to how to speak with your legislators.  Let nothing keep you from speaking for our children.

This legislative session is not going to be easy.  Everyone knows it.  It's time for our legislators to make the hard choices and finish what they started.  Join us in Olympia on January 24th and be a part of something great.
