Join one of our Advisory Councils today (details below) and be invited to our Legislative Briefing and Reception on February 15th. As an Advisory Council member, The Family Foundation's Legislative Briefing and Reception is your opportunity to speak directly with Virginia’s legislators on issues that matter to you.  Last year, several dozen state senators and delegates attended the reception and we were pleased to have Governor Bob McDonnell, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and Speaker of the House Bill Howell speak at the legislative briefing.  This year's Legislative Briefing and Reception promises to be equally inspiring!
