In order to comply with the law, any Kansas State University employee intending to communicate with a member of Congress, federal government employee — Schedule C and above — and military personnel — pay grade 0-7 and above — needs to attend one of the following training sessions:

  • 1:30-2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, in the K-State Student Union's Big 12 Room. 
  • 10-11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, in the Flint Hills Room of the K-State Student Union. 
  • 1:30-2:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3, in the K-State Student Union's Big 12 Room.

The training session will be conducted by Ed Watson, partner at Foulston Siefkin Law Firm.
