State Grassroots Liaisons
In 2004, AACN created the State Grassroots Liaison (SGL) program. This program was initiated to build a stronger grassroots network for the AACN membership. As an SGL, the Dean/Director assists the Government Affairs Committee and Government Affairs staff by bridging connections between our association and their Members of Congress. SGLs also provide a critical link to policy issues at the state level and bolster AACN’s advocacy efforts when timely action is needed. In addition, SGLs are responsible for arranging Senate visits for their state colleagues during the AACN Spring and Fall meetings as well as encouraging them to make visits with their House Representatives.
