We have reached capacity for this event. To be added to the wait list, please email Laurie Liles,


To register, you must log in and purchase your ticket (free for AZ Impact for Good members). This year your ticket also includes a "What to Expect for Day of Advocacy" series you can watch at your own pace to fully prepare you for the day's activities. If for any reason you need assistance with registration, please contact or email Laurie Liles,



AZ Impact for Good is pleased to invite Arizona nonprofit professionals and grantmakers to attend our annual Day of Advocacy with Arizona legislators at the Arizona State Capitol on Wednesday, February 28, 2024.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network and learn with other nonprofit and philanthropic attendees, meet with lawmakers, and enjoy lunch and remarks from legislators. You can also sit in on a House or Senate session and participate in a meet-and-greet with a local elected or administrative professional.

NEW THIS YEAR: We encourage all attendees to use our Day of Advocacy as an opportunity to build personal relationships with your legislators. This year, the AZ Impact for Good Advocacy and Public Policy Team will provide Day of Advocacy registrants with legislators' contact information in advance, along with step-by-step instructions for scheduling meetings with your lawmakers, rather than our team scheduling appointments for small-group meetings as we've done in past years.

These instructions will be available by viewing our on demand "What To Expect for Day of Advocacy" series (links available upon registration), so you feel fully prepared to schedule and participate in effective legislative meetings. If you've attended previous Days of Advocacy, you know legislators' schedules are fluid and our own members' plans also change, creating logistical challenges for creating and managing small groups. We hope this change will enhance the Day of Advocacy experience for everyone.

Registration Fees

If for any reason you need to cancel your registration or you do not attend, you will be charged a $20 cancelation fee to cover event costs. We advise attendees to find another person in your organization to take your spot to avoid a cancelation fee.
