Winter 2021 MOAA Ohio Council of Chapters Legislative Update
On January 21, about a dozen Ohio MOAA members from local chapters participated in the first Ohio Legislative Coordination Meeting. Highlights were as follows:
• Checking in with local chapters' legislative liaisons
• Summary of MOAA participation in Ohio Department of Veterans Services by Bill Radcliffe
• Presentation by James Rickel - Regional Liaison at Defense State Liaison Office (DOD) including past accomplishments and 2021 priorities (see attachment)
The group will also be holding its next Zoom meeting on March 9 at 4 PM via Zoom. Any interested MOAA members are invited to attend and the Zoom meeting and invitation details are below.
The meeting will feature a representative of the MOAA National Government Relations Staff to speak to us about 1) how we can all virtually participate in MOAA's 2021 Advocacy in Action (formerly Storm the Hill) campaign,
2) MOAAs' 2021 legislative priorities, 3) how to best keep involved in MOAA national legislation throughout the year, 4) thoughts on how to leverage relationships our members might have with our Ohio legislators and other topics of
interest to Ohio MOAA members.
