Presenting testimony at the Colorado capitol or at the state board of education is an extremely good opportunity to make your case to legislators, establish credibility as an expert voice on an issue, and raise the visibility of your school or district. Hearings don’t have to be about the pros and cons of a specific piece of legislation; they can be organized to explore an important issue or examine options for dealing with a problem. Be sure that you know your issue well enough to anticipate opposing view points or hostile questions and prepare answers in advance. Practice, practice, practice.
If you plan to testify, please contact CASE Executive Director Bruce Caughey or CASE Lobbyist Elisabeth Rosen. If you need help preparing to testify, just contact us and we can assist you.
