TRAINING / PRACTICE SESSION:  Thursday August 1st 2013 at 7 pm at Noel Levy’s house in Pikesville. About 10 people gathered and had a wonderful time role-playing meetings with State legislators.  Ryan Clayton, Executive Director of Wolf PAC, did a great job modeling both a legislator and citizen-advocate.  This practice paid off handsomely in our recent meetings with legislators.  WE CAN SCHEDULE FUTURE SIMILAR TRAINING SESSIONS AS THE NEED ARISES.
