Go to Post For example an iron block is very simple and very robust. Strap a control system on it and it will meet the requirements of being a FIRST robot. However, it sure doesn't do very much, nor is it innovative. - sanddrag [more]

2018 National Advocacy Conference

Hello Everyone!

Are you interested in getting more awareness and support for FIRST in the U.S.?

Do you or any other teams in your area want to get your voices heard?
Would you like to know what you can do to make a difference for every student in the U.S.?

If any of this interests you, then the 2018 National Advocacy Conference can help you reach those goals.
The 2018 National Advocacy Conference will take place on June 24, 25, 26th at the Holiday Inn Capitol Hotel in Washington, DC. We will train you and send you out to meet with your Senators and Members of Congress. No previous advocacy experience is needed! We focus on building relationships with your elected officials and growing FIRST!
The cost to attend is $250 per person through 5/15/2018, and $280 per person after that date. Space is limited so make sure to register as soon as you can!

The conference brochure can be downloaded at:

The registration website and additional information is at:
firstnac.org

We NEED your help to be heard! The more states and more teams we have represented, the more Congress will take FIRST seriously, and the more they will listen to our desire to promote STEM opportunities for kids all across America!

If you have participated before, please feel free to post a message in this thread telling us about your experience. If you have not participated, please email nac@firstnac.org if you have any questions.
A Special Thank You to: FRC 93 NEW Apple Corps, FRC 1086 Blue Cheese, FRC 1511 The Rolling Thunder, FRC 1676 Pascack Pi-oneers, FRC 1718 The Fighting Pi, FRC 1735 The Green Reapers, FRC 1816 The Green Machine, FRC 2655 The Flying Platypi, FRC 2834 Bionic Blackhawks, and FTC 11256 Nano Nerds for their help in promoting and organizing this event!
Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for those who have participated and recruited new teams in the past and continue to do so now.

Thank you!

Re: 2018 National Advocacy Conference

Thank you so much for making this opportunity public.

A quick question: Is this sponsored or directly linked to FIRST in anyway way, or is it independent?

Thanks for your time.

Re: 2018 National Advocacy Conference

Noodles,
This opportunity has always been public. We are trying to expand it to include as many states as possible. It is not directly linked to FIRST although they are involved. Don Bossi has spoken at the conferences. It is run by Steve Hyer and his team with help from some FRC teams including mine. Please check out the website for the details of the conference. You can also write to nac@firstnac.org or contact me if you have any other questions.

Re: 2018 National Advocacy Conference

We as a program were fortunate to attend NAC for three years. It was an amazing experience for our team and impacted our team in so many ways. I cannot express the importance and impact it will have on the individuals who attend.
Without us attending NAC, we would never have been able to start SACOT here in Texas. I cannot say that if not for other Texas teams attending NAC (148 and 3310), we would not have been able to get the word out about the importance of political advocacy within our state. I would encourage you to get your team involved as well as get some other teams from your state there with you. You as a group then can work and make a greater impact.

Re: 2018 National Advocacy Conference

NAC is one of the most important things Blue Cheese has been fortunate enough to be a part of. It's impact cannot be understated on the law makers and my students. We have seen our Congressman's stance slowly align with our own over the past few years. I credit NAC for this.

I STRONGLY encourage any team to take advantage of this opportunity. Don't be afraid if you have never done anything like this. You are trained while you are there and we can even arrange for a veteran member of these activities to accompany you.

If you come to a FRC event to see a robot competition, you are missing the point.

Re: 2018 National Advocacy Conference

NAC is a great whey to advocate for STEM. My team and I had made a commercial for NAC which you can find here: https://youtu.be/XSmahyrU3Jc This can be used as a faster way to get people informed and interested in NAC.
