If you are not logged in, you will see the non-member price.

Meetings on Capitol Hill are not always the only — or the best — way to connect advocates with legislators. Whether you call them site visits, facility tours or office visits, these opportunities can provide a chance to educate lawmakers on what you do and who you represent, leaving a valuable impression for months and years to come. What makes a coordinated and well-executed in-district strategy? We will share solutions for engaging members and employees, association chapters and company facilities in your advocacy efforts and top tactics for training advocates, coordinating logistics and making use of local resources.

Top takeaways will include:

Assessing resources and goals to create a site visit plan that works for your organization

- Engaging and recruiting local advocates and leadership to be part of the process

- Strategies for managing and executing site visit logistics – like scheduling considerations, working with legislative staff and training advocates – whether you are planning 10 events or 100

- Ways to energize visits and tours to make them memorable for legislators and advocates alike

- How to make sure your in-district strategy complements your other grassroots efforts
