Action Item: Contact your Senators to support "Counseling for Career Choice"
Counseling for Career Choice (S. 282) has been introduced in the U. S. Senate. It is very important for you to contact the Senators from your state and ask them to co-sponsor and to support the inclusion of this Act as an amendment to the Strengthening America’s Schools Act (S. 1094). S. 282 has the support of ACA, ACTE and the State Directors of Career and Technical Education, but your Senators need to hear from you directly.
An e-mail message is the most effective method of communication. To contact your senators, go to: www.senate.gov and you will find an alphabetical listing of senators. Click on your senators' names, and their website will give you contact information.
In your message, after you ask them to co-sponsor the Act and support its inclusion as an amendment to S. 1094, you may want to include some of the following points (using your own language):
Please inform our Government Relations (GR) Committee of your contact and the response you get by sending me a copy of your e-mail and any response: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our GR Committee will use this information in our contacts with congressional committees and federal agencies to strengthen the legislation and policies needed by NCDA members to provide needed programs and services.
