Following Up After The Meeting

Post on Social Media

After the meeting, post on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram tagging the Member and thanking them for taking the time to meet with you. If possible, ask to take a picture with the Member or staffer you met with to post as well.


Follow up Email

After the meeting, we encourage advocates to follow up with the staffers to thank them and to reiterate the requests you’ve made. There is no need to follow these templates exactly. They are meant only as an example of the range of topics you may want to cover in your follow up.

Appropriations request form

Offices will often ask you to complete an appropriator request form. We’ve developed tips for filling those out and are also happy to help.
