In a world where most communication is conducted online, it’s more important than ever to get in front of federal legislators to share information and let them know how we feel about the policies they make on Capitol Hill.
The IREM Congressional In-District Program can help us connect with Members of Congress at home.
Congressional In-District visits should be scheduled between April 10th and April 21st. Both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate have scheduled district work periods during that time, so meeting your federal legislators should be much easier.
