Members of the House of Representatives will be home in their districts for the entire month of August. According to the Congressional Management Foundation, ninety-eight percent of Congressional offices value in-district site visits as a way to engage with constituents.
This is your opportunity to meet with your Representative in the district and discuss NECA’s priority issues. Members of Congress look forward to opportunities to visit constituents at NECA-IBEW Training Centers, jobsites, NECA chapter offices, or company headquarters. Call your local district office and request a meeting at one of these locations.
In-district visits are your chance to share your story and talk about the electrical construction industry. Be prepared for your meeting by reading up on the top issues affecting the industry and having information pertaining to your local area to show the impact NECA contractors make in the district. Some important statistics to have on hand include the number of employees you have, or a key project your company completed.
Don’t forget, each in-district visit will earn your chapter five points in the 2018 Chairman’s Challenge!
