SNEAC 2019

On February 24th and 26th you can directly impact your community by attending the second annual Southern New England Advocacy Conference at WPI hosted by The Green Reapers. All FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge teams from Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island are invited to participate in this two-day event where they will learn about how their government operates, develop the skills necessary to advocate for important issues, and travel to their state capital to discuss these issues with their representatives.

On the first day, teams will gather together to listen to key speakers and work in groups to practice advocating. On day two, teams will travel to their state capital to put their new skills into action, speaking with their representatives about the importance of STEM.

Even if you already have a relationship with your representatives this will be a great opportunity to train team members what messages we should be giving them. With advocacy, the power is in numbers. The more people we can engage, the more effective we can be.

Visit for more information on the conference and registration.

P.S. If other states are interested in participating let me know. We have the space but we need help from you.
