Each year, NAIFA capitalizes on the grassroots momentum created by our state chapters' Legislative Days and the national Congressional Conference by coordinating in-district meetings with members of Congress during the August legislative recess. You should be a part of it and invite colleagues to join, too.
Meeting with lawmakers in the community where you live is a great way to build relationships and show your connection to their constituents. It differentiates you from the steady flow of lobbyists lawmakers meet with in Washington. It drives home the fact that NAIFA members represent Main Street, not Wall Street.
In-district meetings are often more relaxed than meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill and your Representatives and Senators may be under fewer time constraints. NAIFA grassroots veterans Lawrence Holzberg, Tom Michel, and Mike Peters are featured in a video shedding more light on the effectiveness of these meetings.
Sign up by logging in to the NAIFA Member portal and completing the form available under the "Advocate" tab or by contacting your State Grassroots Chair.
