Legislative Monitoring, Advocacy, and Planners Legislative Action Day (PLAD). The Committee has several responsibilities, but its core mission is to promote good planning practice in Illinois through effective legislative advocacy. Driving our advocacy is the research the Committee does on pending state legislation, as well as building support for legislation we believe will promote good planning practice. Our premiere advocacy event is Planners Legislative Action Day, commonly known as PLAD. 2018 will mark the 4th year of PLAD which has become a fun and important event on the Chapters calendar. PLAD gives Illinois planners an opportunity to engage in the legislative process through education and advocacy. PLAD starts with an attendee breakfast in Springfield, that includes a guest speaker familiar with the legislative process and advocacy. We go over a set of legislative priorities that includes bills being considered in committee and legislative initiatives the Chapter would like to eventually see taken up by the Generally Assembly. We then head over to the Capitol and take a group picture, before setting out for meetings with our representatives and senators, meet with other legislators, and attend committee and House and Senate floor sessions. We close the day with a cocktail reception that includes invited guests from the General Assembly. We encourage all APA Illinois members to attend PLAD. We know you will find it educational, engaging, invigorating, and a lot of fun! 3. Importance of Legislative Advocacy. Planners occupy an important role in the states economic and political system. Planners responsibilities set the table for investments across all sectors of the economy. Planners work is also governed by a myriad of laws, and sometimes regulations issued by state administrative agencies, and regional governmental entities. Accordingly, the connection between planners work and law is a natural one. The inclination of many planners to assume a passive role and let others make decisions runs counter to the importance of their roles as shapers of state economy. The Committee works to provide information and effective avenues that empower planners to make their voices heard in Springfield. The Committee also works to build the Chapters profile as an expert on land use, development, and economic development matters being considered at the Capitol. With or without planners, Springfield will continue to consider and pass legislation that shapes and affects planning practice in Illinois. Every Illinois planner has a stake in ensuring that these laws promote best planning practices, that builds better communities in and improves the quality of living for people throughout Illinois. Consider this your call to action and join us in Making Great Communities Happen in Illinois! 4816-4867-9503, v. 1 AC7 = > A u ! n o ` c 8;nxJKabe{ƾƺ¨~zh: hw=5>*hw=hw=5>*hw=hw=5 htdhtdCJOJQJ^JaJhtdCJOJQJ^JaJh vh>hw=htdh*v h*vh + h*vh*vh*vh*v5>*h*vh*v5h + h +5h +h +5CJ$aJ$0BCf A n  0 N u $da$gdtd$ & Fda$gd v$ & Fda$gd*v $da$gd + $da$gd +  m n a b 9:ab$-DM [$\$a$gdtd$ & F-DM [$\$a$gdtd $da$gdtd $da$gdw=moGJlmz|żhnh*6CJhnhnCJhnh*6h16hU hU 5>*hU hU 5hU h:h:H*hw=h:FGnoVW{| $da$gdtd21h:pN / =!"#$% j 666666666vvvvvvvvv666666>6666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666hH6666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666662 0@P`p2( 0@P`p 0@P`p 0@P`p 0@P`p 0@P`p 0@P`p8XV~ OJPJQJ_HmH nH sH tH J`J N Normal dCJ_HaJmH sH tH DA D Default Paragraph FontRiR 0 Table Normal4 l4a (k ( 0No List D@D *v List Paragraph ^m$VOV tdtextboxddd[$\$CJOJPJQJ^JaJPK![Content_Types].xmlj0Eжr(΢Iw},-j4 wP-t#bΙ{UTU^hd}㨫)*1P' ^W0)T9<l#$yi};~@(Hu* Dנz/0ǰ $ X3aZ,D0j~3߶b~i>3\`?/[G\!-Rk.sԻ..a濭?PK!֧6 _rels/.relsj0 }Q%v/C/}(h"O = C?hv=Ʌ%[xp{۵_Pѣ<1H0ORBdJE4b$q_6LR7`0̞O,En7Lib/SeеPK!kytheme/theme/themeManager.xml M @}w7c(EbˮCAǠҟ7՛K Y, e.|,H,lxɴIsQ}#Ր ֵ+!,^$j=GW)E+& 8PK!Ptheme/theme/theme1.xmlYOo6w toc'vuر-MniP@I}úama[إ4:lЯGRX^6؊>$ !)O^rC$y@/yH*񄴽)޵߻UDb`}"qۋJחX^)I`nEp)liV[]1M<OP6r=zgbIguSebORD۫qu gZo~ٺlAplxpT0+[}`jzAV2Fi@qv֬5\|ʜ̭NleXdsjcs7f W+Ն7`g ȘJj|h(KD- dXiJ؇(x$( :;˹!
