Subject: 2011 Legislative Education Project

The Governor's Council on Disability has made changes for the 2011 Legislative Education Project (LEP): 

To participate in the LEP individuals or organizations must register online for a webcast that discusses how a bill becomes a law and how to become your own self advocate at the Capitol. Once the webcast is completed, the individual or organization may continue their learning experience by selecting a one-day or two-day training at the Capitol. The two-day training provides a more intensive learning process. The individual or organizations are encouraged to schedule an appointment with their representatives or senators prior to coming to the Capitol. LEP at the Capitol is facilitated by mentors who are knowledgeable on disability policies. The mentors will escort the individuals or organizations at the Capitol. 

The Governor's Council on Disability does not charge a fee for the webcast or the training materials and information provided during the LEP.  Each participant is responsible for his or her own food, travel, and lodging expenses.

To obtain an LEP certificate of completion an individual or organization must complete the webcast and attend the LEP at the Capitol.


Step 1: 
Sign up for the webcast.  Please register as early as possible since space is limited.  


Step 2:
Upon completion of the webcast, you may register for the LEP training at the Capitol.  Please click here to complete the registration form:
