Expert Feedback Teams
CSDA has established ten teams to provide invaluable expertise to CSDA advocacy staff. The teams are comprised of district staff, management, directors and business affiliates who work within specified disciplines. When a need for feedback arises on a particular policy matter, CSDA advocacy staff sends an email to an expert feedback team asking for input. Team members reply with their thoughts, opinions and experiences. Teams include: Environment, Revenue, Formation and Reorganization, Governance, Human Resources and Personnel, Public Works and Facilities, and Legal.
Applications received before mid-October will be considered for the following calendar year.
The committee plays a key role in establishing priorities and positions on legislation each legislative session. CSDA members or business affiliate may apply to join. Join a CSDA Legislative Committee. The approval of committee membership requests takes place at the CSDA Board planning session each fall.
Legislative Distribution List
Participants are copied on email correspondence sent to the CSDA Legislative Committee, where participants have the opportunity to provide feedback on issues before the committee.
