August 6, 2015

Every August, Congress recesses for a month so 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 during PIA Advocacy Month.

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 Federal Legislative Summit (FLS) will follow up with their members of Congress by participating in PIA Advocacy Month and maintaining a direct connection.

PIA has many resources available on our website at www.piaadvocacymonth.com, including talking points, position statements, and tips to how to have a successful meeting to help members prepare and have a productive meeting with their members of Congress. Have a question? Contact Stephanie Klarer, PIA National's government affairs coordinator, at stephaniekl@pianet.org or 703-518-1364.
