How Do I Prepare?

1)    “Like Us” on Facebook at  We will actively use Facebook for dissemination of information and to generate discussion and answer questions.

2)    Attend the pre-summit Webinars

3)    Read up on current policy priorities in your state and at the national level and post your thoughts and questions on Facebook.  The more information you have about your local area, the easier it will be to have a productive Hill Visit.

4)    Register for the Summit.
