How to Run a
District Meeting

The perfect time to meet with your representatives face to face and talk to them about the issues that matter the most to you and your organization is during the spring recess. Personal visits are highly effective ways of helping legislators understand your position or program. Legislators welcome visits from constituents. They want you involved, even though they are busy people.

Arranging these meetings is relatively easy and the meetings themselves are inexpensive and convenient. Whether it's your first time or you just want to brush up on your advocacy skills, fear not! CAMEO's VP of Engagement and External Relations (and our longtime advocacy pro) walks you through the process of setting up and running a successful district meeting, step by step.
