To Prepare for these visits, please look at the following resources:
Each state delegation is coordinated by a volunteer state captain. Your state captain should contact you after you have registered for the Gathering.
You will have time to meet with your state delegation on Monday, February 11, 2013 to organize yourselves, select spokespersons on the various issues targeted for advocacy, and confirm the schedule for your congressional meetings.
You are responsible for scheduling a meeting with your Representative or Senator. However, if there are several people attending the Gathering from the same congressional district, the state captain may ask one person to schedule the meeting. Please schedule meetings between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 12, 2013.
Join us on Sunday, February 10 at 1:30 p.m. for the First-Time CSMG Attendees Orientation, which will include discussion about legislative advocacy and its role in the CSMG. Then on Tuesday February 12 there will be an Advocacy Fair from 11:00-12:30 a.m., at which participants will sharpen skills and have a last opportunity to get answers to questions on policy issues before heading to our Capitol Hill visits that afternoon. Finally, all participants are encouraged to spend some time in advance of travel to CSMG with the Quick Tips for Advocacy. And those who will be serving as State Captains for legislative visits will find the Information for State Captains and Tips for State Captains webinars especially helpful.
