Conference Tracks

Conference tracks are developed to help attendees focus on the sessions that interest them the most. It is not a requirement to stay within the same track when choosing sessions. TAFA features four tracks:

Building Skills
Sharpen your skills as an animal advocate and learn how to build effective campaigns with new and innovative strategies to bring back to your community.

Learning the Issues
New to the field of animal protection? Soak up the basics and hear from experts on a range of issues facing all animals.

Public Policy
Animals need the law on their side. Hear from attorneys, lobbyists, and others on how you can help usher in a new era of lawmaking and enforcement for animal protection.
Advocacy 101 (new this year!)
Do you have a pet that you love? Like to garden?  Appreciate your community? New advocates will learn about many issues that animals face in our society. You'll learn that helping animals can begin right in your own home...your neighborhood...your community - with just a few rewarding and fun activities.

Lobby Day

Monday, June 30:
Capitol Hill

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with your federal lawmakers and/or their staffs to let them know how important animal issues are to you.  We rarely get the chance to walk the halls of Congress and meet our elected officials, so don’t miss this opportunity. We will be with you every step of the way and provide you with everything you need to be effective. Plus, Lobby Day is a fun and easy way to instantly become a citizen lobbyist. The skills you will learn can later be applied at your local or state level.  We hope to see you all there. The animals need every available humane advocate working on the front lines for humane legislation, and this is a perfect opportunity to do just that!

How it works:
 •  During the registration process on the agenda page, indicate you will attend Lobby Day.
•  Our lobbyists will make an appointment for you with your legislators and/or their staffs.
•  Attend the mandatory "Get Ready to Lobby" training session on Sunday, June 30, from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
•  On Monday, join us on Capitol Hill and put your new skills into practice by discussing important animal protection legislation during your appointment. We will all go to the Capitol together, and our experts will be available to answer any last-minute questions.
•  You will go to your appointments with The HSUS state director and other attendees from your state who are also attending the conference. This is a great way to meet new friends and advocates from home.
