In addition, KCSL staff and one or two key stakeholders will attend the CKF annual and regional meetings. Once key stakeholders have returned from CKF annual and/or regional meetings, lessons learned from these meetings will be broadly disseminated to interested parties across the state. Through KCSL's advocacy program, there is an existing network of individuals, organizations and coalitions who are part of our database called the ACT Network. The network receives weekly e-newsletters throughout the legislative session, from January to April, and monthly e-newsletters during the interim session. The network also receives periodic mailings as well. Currently, there are approximately 300 key individuals in the database, in addition to nearly all schools and libraries in the state. Key stakeholders who have an interest in children's health insurance issues will be added to the database throughout the grant period.
At the beginning of each legislative session, we put together a public policy agenda for all legislators. Included in that packet, we will include CKF information within our section on health care policy.
