Members & Friends,
Pocketbook Politics had an amazing 2010 beginning with our kickoff event last March and continuing with sold out luncheons, nationally recognized speakers and an ever increasing membership roster! Thank you to everyone for making the first year of Pocketbook Politics a great success!
As 2011 rolls in, we are gearing up for an eventful year and look forward to you joining us! New leadership takes hold of the gavel this week in Congress and a new governor and dozens of freshman lawmakers enter the Gold Dome next week. State funds are low. The nation’s deficit is high. What are the solutions, who will lead the way, and how can you make an impact?
It’s all up for discussion with Pocketbook Politics this year!
Special Events Planned for 2011!
Pocketbook Politics will host three policy education forums throughout the year.
This winter we are talking taxes as Georgia lawmakers undertake an overhaul of the state’s antiquated tax code. By spring, we shift focus to healthcare and later in the fall we will be checking up on our newly elected lawmakers to see whether they actually walked the talk.
We are also planning several special member-only opportunities putting you in direct contact with policy makers as well as social gatherings to share ideas and concerns with like-minded professional women.
