Plan a Congressional Visit

Congressional Visit and Advocacy Best Practices

Use our tips for engaging elected officials in meetings and town hall discussions.

Before the Visit

After the Visit

  • Stay in touch. Follow-up the visit with an email thanking the member of Congress or staffer for their time and briefly summarizing the major issues discussed, including your “ask.” Keep in touch with your legislator through occasional correspondence and visits to the local office. Be sure to follow through on any commitments you made to staffers.
  • Share your experience. Check in with FASEB Office of Public Affairs staff. Ask them for help with follow-up materials, if needed. Complete a visit report form and send to FASEB or contact Jennifer Zeitzer or Ellen Kuo in the FASEB Office of Public Affairs.
