Meet with Your Legislator
As a family physician, you are uniquely positioned to provide credible, on-the-frontlines feedback to your elected officials about how the state budget will affect your practice and the thousands of patients you treat. We've prepared all the information you need to set up a meeting, and help deliver a pro-family medicine message!
- Find Your Representative
Type in your home or work address and you will receive the link to your legislator's website, where you can find the contact information for the district office closest to you.
- Complete the Meeting Request Letter
Complete the template legislative meeting request letter and fax it to your legislator’s office using the contact information found on his/her Web page. If there isn’t a fax number, call the office to find out the best way to send the request letter. Some offices may also allow you to email scheduling requests.
- Call and Schedule Your Meeting
After faxing/emailing the letter, wait one day then call the same office and confirm your request was received. Ask for the best available dates and times to meet. Don’t be concerned if you end up meeting with staff. Congressional schedules change unexpectedly and staff will communicate your concerns.
