About the Conference

At the Southern New England Advocacy Conference all FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge teams from Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island are invited to learn about how state laws are made and how to talk to politicians. The first day will consist of a few speakers and then breakout sessions to practice what you will talk to your representatives about.
