Advocating for students at the local, state, and national level
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.
