Building relationships with lawmakers back home is a proven-effective congressional interaction strategy. A CMF survey of congressional staff examined the best methods utilized by Members of Congress for understanding constituents’ views. “Attending events in the district/state” was the top answer, with 98% of congressional staff noting its importance. In-state grassroots strategies got a significant boost in 2011 when the House of Representatives significantly altered its calendar, more than doubling the number of congressional recesses each year. But what are the best strategies for getting an in-district meeting with legislators? What are the best ways to invite Members of Congress to events? And how many people do they expect to attend in-district meetings and events? This program will draw upon the results a survey of House District Directors and will discuss the differences and nuances of district-based interactions with Members of Congress.
