How to Create a Local Event That Will Attract a Member of Congress, Local Media, and Enhance Your Mission (Itís Easier than You Think)!
Susie Gorden, Vice President, Congressional Management Foundation

Research shows that Members of Congress using visits to local facilities can be one of the most valuable ways to collect constituent views and opinions Ė 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 to learn about your issues and have a powerful personal experience about the value of your organization(s) in their district or state. Participants will receive a specific checklist for inviting a legislator and creating an event.
