Purpose

The Congressional Committee, chaired by the SSA Director of Legislative Affairs, coordinates SSA's lobbying efforts. SSA lobbies for students' interests locally and at the state and national levels. The Congressional Committee, with the coordination of the Congressional Committee Advisor and Director of Legislative Affairs, tracks legislation likely to impact students and meets with legislators to advocate on behalf of students. The Congressional Committee also assists the Director of Legislative Affairs in coordinating SSA's civic engagement initiatives.

Contact

If you have concerns or issues you would like the Congressional Committee to be aware of or lobby for, please reach out to the SSA Director of Legislative Affairs at ssalegaffairs@uwstout.edu or join us at our Congressional Committee meetings. Official meeting postings are on our events page.
