Every August, Congress recesses for a month so their members can head home to their districts 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 August.

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

PIA has many resources available on our website at http://www.pianet.com/grassroots/pia-advocacy-month such as talking points, position statements, and tips to how to have a successful meeting, to help members prepare and to have a productive meeting with their member of Congress.
