(more details on official site)
If you cannot make it:-The proceedings will be streamed LIVE at www.amendthecpsia.com (10 AM April 1).-Many attendees will be "twittering" during the Briefing and during meetings. Follow "amendcpsia" and follow the overall conversation by searching "cpsia".
What EVERYONE can do to maximize the impact. There is a great blog post by Joli in the "Behind The Scenes" section. Here are a couple points I picked out:
-Call your Representatives & Senator's offices and invite them and their Legislative Aides to attend (details are on the site and the homepage of cpsia-central).
-Contact your local media (newspapers, radio, etc) and ask that their Washington Bureau cover the story. Or tell them of your story of trekking to DC.
-Want to have your voice heard? Submit your testimony to congress via the AmendTheCPSIA.com website. We will include it in the packet to be given to Congress.
-Blog about it, send e-newsletters to your customers, announce it as part of your email signature.
Be sure to check the website www.amendthecpsia.com often, and subscribe to updates.
We are looking forward to an action-packed day.
Thanks for all your support.
