Congressional Recess Offers Opportunity to Meet with your Representative
Because the most impactful meetings with legislators occur face to face in their home districts, the 2018 Congressional recess is an excellent time to invite your representative to speak at a chapter meeting. Recess runs from July 30–Sept. 3; we encourage all chapters to host a lawmaker whether it's from your state legislature or Congress.
We are already half way through the month of August and you can still reach out to your elected official. If you already have plans to host a lawmaker or if you need assistance getting a meeting scheduled, please contact April Krause, political and grassroots director at or 800-442-5762, Ext. 6487.
