If your workforce team is planning a visit to DC, schedule a meeting with members of Congress to start or continue advocacy conversations that focus legislators’ attention on the work being done in your communities and regions. The toolkit items below are prepared annually in conjunction with The Forum, NAWB’s annual conference, and they are designed to help you plan and prepare for your visit to the Hill. The Legislative Priorities document may be used to develop speaking points as well as a ‘leave behind’ piece, to accompany any local data and impacts you are sharing.
Meetings with your Members of Congress must be planned before you arrive in DC. Following these steps will prepare you for a productive meeting with your policy makers.
