ASI Lobby Corp
What is Lobby Corp?
The CSUSM Lobby Corp is the advocacy branch of ASI. It's comprised of Cal State San Marcos students who lobby at local, state, and federal levels as well as organize events centered around higher education issues.
We provide classes and training sessions that teach students how to actively participate in the legislative process. Students learn how to coordinate visits to their state representatives to ensure that they know where the students stand on issues of higher education.
Duties of a Lobby Corps Member:
- Register students to vote online.
- Attend lobby and advocacy training provided by the Vice President of External Affairs.

- Meet with Assembly and Senate members to discuss legislative bills and their progress.
- Organize events on campus and in the San Marcos community to promote the importance of higher education.
