Many advocates wake up the morning after elections to discover that their long-standing champions for their cause have been sent packing, causing a scramble to cultivate new congressional proponents on the Hill. Don’t be caught off guard in January, join us for a quick webinar and learn how to engage newly elected officials.
Featured Topic & Speakers
Based on CMF research, including the first-ever survey of freshmen congressional offices, participants will learn about what it’s like to set up and work in a freshman congressional office and how that impacts the strategies that many advocates commonly use to introduce themselves to new Members of Congress. Participants will learn:
- When is “too early” to request a meeting with a freshman lawmaker?
- When are offices prepared to answer constituent mail campaigns?
- Who is the best office staffer to initially reach out to?
The presentation will be conducted by Bradford Fitch, President and CEO of the Congressional Management Foundation. Fitch is a 36-year veteran of Washington, including a stint as a Chief of Staff to a freshman Member of the US House of Representatives.
