Nonprofit Day on the Hill

Spend the day engaged in the general session and build relationships with policy makers and elected officials. Instead of tabling in the rotunda, we’ll be on the move—touring the capitol, meeting with people, and voicing our mission and our needs. The low cost of $35 per person lets you bring everyone on your team that can help carry your message. Join us for all of the event or come and go as you need. Since 2022 registration will be by individual rather than by organization, you can divide and communicate—or stand united, as you see fit.

Nonprofit Day on the Hill creates conversations, relationships and, most importantly, results. Join UNA and nonprofits from across Utah at the capitol for a newly reimagined day at the capitol where you will: 

  • Introduce your nonprofit to policymakers 
  • Share the value and impact of your organization with the elected officials who make decisions that affect your work and your funding 
  • Create conversations that lead to friendships with people on capitol hill and people from everywhere in Utah who can help your mission thrive. 
  • Participate in the General Session 

Your individual registration includes: 

  • Virtual Orientation | February 7, 2022 
  • Virtual Advocacy Day with Legislative Staff | February 8, 2022  
  • Nonprofit Day on the Hill | February 10, 2022
