Many Americans believe that lawmakers are unreachable – that they don't care about what constituents think and that influencing legislative outcomes is impossible and a waste of time. Yet CMF research shows that Members of Congress strongly believe that constituents are a valuable and informative resource in the decision-making process. Your "backstage pass" will dispel myths about Congress and provide practical strategies on how decisions are really made and by whom.
During this program, participants will learn the following:
- Who to communicate with in congressional offices, when, and for what?
- What's it like to be a Member of Congress or to work for one?
- What is the best way to communicate with Members of Congress and their staff?
