FASEB Congressional Visit Toolbox

FASEB has launched a new Congressional Visit Toolbox

aimed at empowering, training, and equipping scientists to build relationships with their elected representatives in Congress. The Toolbox contains everything needed to plan and conduct a Congressional visit, including templates for meeting requests and follow-up letters, printable, state-specific ‘leave-behind’ materials, and customizable talking points on the importance of biomedical research. Training materials, such as a slideshow tutorial on advocacy and a video of Congressional visit role-plays, are also linked to the site.

You’ll have a chance to put this resource to use in the coming weeks as the FY10 budget bills come up for debate and votes … not to mention health care reform legislation.
