• Bring a camera/phone to get a photo of you with the Legislator and/or staff.

• Use the legislative feedback form to take notes immediately following your meeting.

Legislative Visit “Don’ts”

• Don’t make up information. It is OK to say “I don’t know” and that you “will follow up” — and then be sure to follow up.

• Don’t be intimidated — legislators are just people just like you.

• Don’t get distracted — it’s easy to chat about mutual acquaintances, the weather, other issues — and find your time has suddenly disappeared.

• Never come off accusatory or angry — even if you don’t agree with them on how they voted on an issue. You are representing LMB, MTGA, MMBA and PEAC who are all nonpartisan.

After the Meeting People perceive things differently; debrief as a group. Fill out the feedback form (one per meeting) and turn it in to an Advocacy Day volunteer at our tent on the lawn. It’s the responsibility of the Team Captain to make sure a filled out feedback form is turned in.

Follow up with your legislator as soon as possible! Send any promised information or materials. Write a thank-you letter after you return home with a personal memory about your meeting. In your follow up correspondence, attach another copy of the issue papers that you left at the office, which you can download at www.LMB.org/advocacyagenda.pdf. Stay in contact and continue to monitor and follow up as these issues move through the legislative process.
