Each Spring, the Washington Bureau hosts the Legislative Policy Conference. However, if your Affiliate, Guild or YP chapter wants to plan an additional legislative fly-in to Washington, DC to lobby your members of Congress, the Washington Bureau wants to help make it a total success!

We can help schedule appointments with your Member of Congress, conduct a "Lobbying Your Member of Congress 101" training session for your team AND accompany your team to the Hill! The Washington Bureau staff is made up of seasoned professionals who have served as chiefs of staff, legislative directors, committee staff and various other positions on Capitol Hill. Let us help you make your legislative fly-in a complete success!

For more information, please do not hesistate to contact me, Don Cravins, Jr.
