The holidays are around the corner, and before you know it, the 2019 State Legislative Session will be here. That’s the 45-day period between January and March when our state senators and representatives propose, debate and vote on over 1200 bills and balance our state budget.
Our part-time legislators appreciate hearing from constituents to help inform their votes. But certain ways of communicating are far more effective than others when it comes to contacting state officials and elected representatives at any level of government. Should you write or call? What does an ideal email header look like? Should you sign your name to a form email? It’s hard to know the best way to get the attention of your elected officials.
That’s why we created “Letters & Conversations” events to teach community members like you how to talk so they’ll listen and write so they’ll read your input on important issues. These events are jam-packed with helpful tips and tools to help community members communicate effectively with and get the attention of their elected leaders. No experience is necessary, but space is limited, so register for an event today!
