A Message from the Co-Chairs

Hey UCSB! Welcome to the new website of UCSB Associated Students Lobby Corps. We are beyond excited to serve as your co-chairs during the 2016-2017 academic year. We see an enormous amount of potential in our student body’s ability to shape public policy in ways that reflect the UCSB community’s unique, innovative, and forward thinking nature. Lobby Corps is a unit of UCSB Associated Students that strives to unite activism, professionalism, and strategic planning to advocate for student needs. We research, analyze, and advocate for – or against – local, state, and national legislation, programs, and policy. We harness the student voice to influence decision makers from Isla Vista to the halls of Congress. Both of us are well versed in the political decision-making process and are looking forward to bringing this experience to our roles as Co-Chairs.

This year, we are looking forward to doing big things. Some of our goals are growing our membership, assisting student groups through lobby workshops, expanding our policy and research, and – of course – doing more lobbying.

If you are interested in joining our team during this crucial time for student interests, we encourage you to apply to our Executive Board. There is no prior experience required. You’ll have the opportunity to work with driven students and grow your network of professionals in the public and private sector.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us. We’re happy to get coffee and chat.

Olé!
