In a few weeks, Congress will take its longest recess of the year. The House and Senate will be in recess from August 1 – September 9. The next session for the NDC Virtual Academy will provide a guide to in-district advocacy, including:
– Advice on the best ways to connect with Members of Congress and their Staff.
– Who should you talk to and how do you schedule a tour or a groundbreaking?
– What information is important to the Senator or Representative?
– Who should attend the meeting, tour or groundbreaking?
When Congress returns to Washington in September, it will face a long list of decisions. Including extending the debt limit, forging an agreement on discretionary spending, and passing appropriation bills on federal housing and community development funding, as well as tax extenders (including New Markets Tax Credits). The webinar will also include an update on important legislation that is pending before Congress. The webinar will include presentations from lobbyists, Washington interest groups, and practitioners in the field who have had success in getting their Members of Congress to visit projects.
