AAUW Iowa Lobby Day Schedule

Wednesday, February 7, 2024


Meet at 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in Room 305 in the Capitol.  (Note:  Room 305 has been reserved for us to meet with legislators, however, should a committee meeting be called, we may have to adjust our meeting place.)

Participants will each receive an AAUW name badge or bring yours if you already have one.

We’ll review tips for communicating with legislators, House and Senate procedures for contacting legislators, information about issues, and dismiss to talk with legislators.

Selected legislators may meet with us if their schedules allow.

If possible, prior to Lobby Day, schedule a time to meet with legislators you want to meet with.

Lunch is on your own. (There is a cafeteria in the Capitol.)  This may be a good time to meet with legislators .

We’ll reconvene in Room 305 at 1:00 for a brief wrap-up before you head home.


Visitor parking lots (#’s 2,6, 7, 9, 11, 15, 26, 28) are shown in green or black (3, 4, 5, 16) on the Iowa Capitol Complex map.
