Tips for Conducting a Successful Meeting

  • Keep meetings to five people or less. Check in with the staffer shortly before the meeting to let them know how many people are coming.
  • Be prepared to say everything you want to say in 15 minutes or less.
  • Thank them for meeting with you, and stay cordial and polite no matter how you feel about their political views.
  • It’s okay to not know everything. If they ask you a question that you don’t know the answer to, simply tell them you would be glad to follow up (and actually follow up or let us know and we will.
  • Remember: they work for YOU, and YOU are the expert.
  • Take a photo and  let us know how your meeting went!
