Lobby Day


Lobby Day

On Lobby Day NYSVMS leadership visit New York State legislators at the NYS Capitol in Albany or over Zoom. We focus on legislators who chair the committees that are responsible for veterinary issues, or who have a particular interest in issues on our Legislative Agenda.

The day starts with a a short briefing followed by meetings in the morning and early afternoon. We are guided in these meetings by our legislative counsel.

This is a great opportunity for these legislators to hear from veterinarians about these issues.

How to participate

We are looking for members who understand and support the NYSVMS legislative agenda and where possible match the constituencies of the legislators that we will visit.

We provide overnight lodging in Albany for those who need it.

To participate in Lobby Day please send us an email. Include the names of your Assembly Member and Senator and we will get back to you to confirm your position on our team.
