MPA Legislative Academy – Starting October 25, 2019
Want to learn how a bill becomes a law in Annapolis? Want to advocate on behalf of MPA? Join us for our 2019-2020 Legislative Academy. MPA’s Legislative Academy is a series of one-hour online sessions conducted by members of our Legislative Committee. Sessions are held the last Friday of the month from 12 noon to 1 pm. The best part? It’s free for all MPA and Maryland School Psychologist Association members. Register today to get up to speed before the general assembly starts in January 2020.
General information on MPA advocacy efforts
MPA works with our legislative advocacy committee, lobbyist and members to monitor and respond to proposals and bills as they became available. Through the filter of MPA’s legislative committee policies and agenda – developed ultimately from the MPA mission statement – pieces of legislation affecting insurance and reimbursement, scope of practice, children, schools, forensic services, public mental health, and other areas, legislation is scrutinized for its effect on practice and the equitable access to mental health care for the citizens of Maryland.
During the 90-day MD legislative session, information on legislation that is of particular interest to Maryland psychologists is available in the members section of the website. Information and MPA’s position on bills from the past session are also available.
