Please mark your calendars for January 29th, 2018 at 1:00pm to attend the #MSAinPA: Understanding the Master Settlement Agreement and Budget Process Webinar! Please note that the time of this webinar has been changed.
In anticipation of the Governor’s budget in February and budget negotiations within a new General Assembly, PACT will be providing comprehensive advocacy resources and technical assistance to advocates in Pennsylvania.
PACT will be offering two separate trainings:
- #MSAinPA: Understanding the Master Settlement Agreement and Budget Process Webinar on January 29th will provide a detailed look at the budget process as well as background and history on the importance of MSA funding for tobacco prevention and control. The intent of the first training is to provide background and prepare everyone for the start of budget season – which is marked by the Governor’s budget address in the beginning of February.
- #MSAinPA: Campaign Kickoff Webinar will be offered after the Governor’s budget address to outline the campaign. This webinar will showcase campaign strategies for this year, either proactive or reactive, based upon information released by the budget address and response from legislators.
Both of these webinars are crucial for advocates to attend to understand and support the policy priority of maintaining this lifesaving funding for tobacco control programs and services. Please forward this information out to all service providers, coalitions and community stakeholders.
