Both houses of the U.S. Congress go on recess August 8 of this year. Members of Congress (MOCs) typically spend this time at home in their districts, connecting with constituents and learning about the issues important to voters.
The Congressional recess is also a perfect opportunity for you to build relationships with your MOCs and to communicate the value of promotional products and the strength of the industry in your state.
To set up a meeting, follow these four steps:
1. Go to www.ppailaw.org and click on “Be A Squeaky Wheel.”
2. Follow the prompts to identify your representatives.
3. Go to your MOCs’ websites, learn more about their schedules and find the contact information for their district offices.
4. Use the sample e-mail meeting requests on www.ppailaw.org to contact your MOCs’ staffs as soon as possible.
