To make sure your district is ready to respond to a CSDA Call to Action in the fast-moving legislative environment, make sure your district has adopted a Legislative Advocacy Policy, governing the process your agency must go through to register your support or opposition to an issue that significantly impacts special districts.
As a member resource, CSDA has developed clear, considered, and consistent messages for members to use as desired when communicating on key issues facing special districts.
