2024 National Legislative Day

[updated 14Feb24]

2024 "Leg Day" planned for Thursday, 29 Feb 2024 in Washington, DC

Cadet Opportunity to Attend National Legislative Day in Washington D.C.


Greetings AKWG Cadet Officers,

This is your friendly Government Liaison speaking. I am looking for two (2) cadets to attend National Legislative Day (NLD) on February 29, 2024, in Washington, D.C. with myself, AK Wing Commander Col MacPherson, Col Tim Verrett (Regional Legal Officer), and perhaps one or two other senior members. Here is an overview of NLD from last year: https://www.capnhq.gov/NL/2023LegislativeDay/content/index.html#/.

I can confirm that we will actually be meeting with Senator Dan Sullivan and briefly with Senator Lisa Murkowski. We will be meeting with Rep Mary Peltola's staff (which is equally as important!). This opportunity will help cadets who will be requesting Congressional nominations for U.S. Service Academies this coming fall. 

What I need from you is a keen eye to ID cadets who fit the following criteria: 

  • Currently a Junior in High School
  • Planning to apply to one or more of the US Service Academies 
  • Available on either 22 Jan (4-5:30 PM AKT) or 25 Jan (5-6:30 PM AKT) for ambassador training 
  • Available ~28 Feb-3 Mar to travel to Washington, DC (travel expenses paid by AKWG)
  • Preference for well-spoken, higher ranking cadets 

I would prefer you send me a list of names, so that I may reach out directly. However, if someone is very enthusiastic, you may give them the link to the Google form application: https://forms.gle/9NsBx6BiCtfsEAda7. We expect to close the application period on 15 Jan with interviews to follow if there is abundant interest. 

If there are additional questions, please don't hesitate to email me directly. 

 

Thank you,
