Once in Albany, there will be a photo-op press event with legislators on the Capitol Steps, facing Washington Park (between Washington & State Streets, facing Swan Street) at 11:00 AM. We want to remind members to give themselves extra time to account for going through security in and around the Capital. Any delegates that arrive early on Wednesday morning (9:30-10:00 AM) can contact Vice President LeRoy McGinnis at 646-217-1599. Members should wear Class A's (dress cap optional).
We will be asking small groups of about 12-20 members to follow the UFA Executive Board to meetings with Leaders at 12:15 PM in LOB Room 839 with Assemblyman Peter Abbate; and at 1:00 PM in CAP Room 349 (near Assembly Chambers) with Speaker Carl Heastie. Additional photo ops will take place.
Members should meet with their legislators between 12:15 - 3:00 PM. Members should schedule to meet their home legislator or make a group meeting with the legislator who represents your firehouse neighborhood. If neither house is in session, members can request to meet their legislator "off the floor" by speaking to SGT/ARMS who stand outside both the Assembly and Senate chambers.
