Lobby Training Conference Call
Learn from an expert!
Thursday, February 25, 12:00 till 12:30
In preparation for our National Small Farm Lobby Day on March 10 (see www.NICFA.org for more information) we are grateful to have Howard Bedlin, a Capitol Hill lobbyist on health care issues with more than 25 years experience, offer to teach us how to be effective with our legislators.
If you cannot be in Washington for the 10th, please still schedule a phone meeting with your Senators' aides that day.
This preliminary training call will cover:
Your initial call to your Senator's office - getting hold of the right person
Introducing yourself and your subject
Scheduling a meeting, or phone meeting, with a staff member
We're holding a follow-up webinar (conference call) Monday, March 8, to go over lobbying procedure, Talking Points, and the status of the food safety bills.
Please join the call Thursday noon.
DATE: Thursday, February 25
TIME: 12:00 - 12:30 p.m.
Please be prompt. The call will be closed at 12:05 to reduce interruptions.
Yours for food freedom,
