Important Items to Note:

  • Dress professionally for the day and wear comfortable shoes. There will be a lot of walking.
  • Bring a white lab coat to wear for the group photo.
  • Bring business cards to leave after each visit, if you have them.
  • All attendees will be making legislative visits in designated teams - primarily organized by your address. These visits have been already scheduled and you do not need to set up any appointments on your own.
  • Each team has a designated, "Team Leader", who has already agreed to help organize each team and guide the visits.
  • Please note that you may not always be visiting your Legislator who represents your address. In order to accommodate the large group of attendees, some individuals will be visiting with other Legislators.
  • Also, you may not meet the actual Legislator. There are times that you may meet with the Legislator's staff member in addition to or in lieu of your Legislator. A Legislator's staff may actually be more aware of the issues we are presenting and has the ability to properly advise the Legislator.
