Support Your State Legislator at Home
The ANFP-PAC encourages members to meet their congressmen in the home district by scheduling an appointment, attending local fundraisers, and participating in town hall meetings. Congressmen value genuine interaction with the people who can vote for them. Engaging in ongoing, systematic communication with legislators gives members a chance to promote the bill, CDM credential and foodservice profession in significant ways.
By attending local events, ANFP members support the advocacy effort in several ways:
- Members get the opportunity to be directly involved in advocacy, strengthening the ANFP’s grassroots network.
- Congressmen prefer to hear about issues from their own constituents. This is your chance to “make it real.”
- Local fundraisers are important events to attend and much more convenient than those in Washington. .
- Local events are smaller and more intimate, so members are likely to obtain more "face time" with their congressman.
