Chris Korsmo, CEO

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were full of good cheer (and football). Now that 2015 has arrived, it's full steam ahead into this critical legislative session. Read our legislative priorities on our website.

Government Relations Director Frank Ordway will chat with us through our Lunchtime LEVinar series on January 8, 2015, on what to expect this legislative session. Read below for more information. I will also begin my Weekly Roundup email series next Friday—sign up via our website to receive those emails. Need a refresher on how our Legislature works? Visit our Washington Legislature 101 web page.

Finally, I would like to extend a big thank you to all of our 2014 donors. You make our work possible. Thanks for all you do for kids. We couldn't do it without you.
