How to Create a Local Event Which Will Attract a Member of Congress, Local Media, and Enhance Your Mission (It's Easier than You Think)!

Research by CMF shows that Members of Congress using visits to local facilities can be one of the most valuable ways to collect constituent views and opinions - more than any other source of information! And yet, how do these events happen? How do groups entice a Member of Congress to attend a local event or meet with key stakeholders? This webinar will show participants how. A former congressional staffer will walk participants through the steps to inviting legislators and reporters to learn about your issues and have a powerful personal experience about the value of your organization(s) in their district or state.

Webinar participants will learn:
  • What are the key steps and timeline for setting up a local event with a legislator?

  • Who should be invited from our community and what role should they play in the event?

  • What are the "magic words" to include in an invite to a Member of Congress?

  • How to pitch local reporters on attending an event.
