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. The second day you will go to your state capital and meet with your representatives.
March 13th & 14th – Virtual Conference
We will be splitting the conference over two days this year, each day being about 4 hours.
