Once the event is confirmed, what can I expect?

You will receive a scenario with all the details of the proposed event and SENgage will be in touch prior to the event to ensure everything is ready. Please keep in mind that the unpredictable nature of parliamentary work means that a visit may need to be cancelled or rescheduled at the last minute.

Check out our Activities page to find one that works best for you.

Can I take pictures at the event?

Yes, you are welcome to take pictures of senators during a visit. You are also encouraged to share them on social media. Our social media handle is @SenateCA and our hashtags are #SenCA #SENgage.

NOTE: Should your event include youth under the age of 18, please ensure you obtain written permission of a parent/guardian prior to sharing any images on social media.
