Tips for Reaching Out to State and Local Officials

Resource Summary

This two-page RWJF Connect Policymaker Outreach document provides information focused on preparing for successful meetings with your state and local policymakers. State and local officials are an important audience for your work — just as important as members of Congress. You can apply many of the same principles you used with members of your congressional delegation in order to prepare for a successful meeting with your state and local policymakers. This brief informs you of the important differences as you develop your strategy for engaging them in your work.
