Every August, Congress recesses for a month so their members can head home to their districts and states to spend time with their constituents. To capitalize on the August recess, PIA National turns the focus of its advocacy to the home districts and states of elected representatives and asks PIA members to meet with their members of Congress.

PIA Advocacy Month is a great opportunity for PIA members to build on or begin to build a relationship with their elected officials. Many PIA members who participated in the PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS) will follow up with their members of Congress by participating in PIA Advocacy Month and maintaining a direct connection.

We encourage PIA members to engage in PIA Advocacy Month throughout the month of August. PIA has many resources available on our website at www.piaadvocacymonth.com, such as talking points, position statements and tips on how to have a successful meeting with members of Congress. Our strategy is to remain fully engaged with our federal lawmakers all year round. Have a question? Contact Stephanie Klarer, PIA National's government affairs coordinator, at stephaniekl@pianet.org or 703-518-1364.
