SCHEDULE MEETINGS WITH YOUR LEGISLATORS

***IMPORTANT: SCHEDULE YOUR LEGISLATIVE APPOINTMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. The afternoon of Tuesday, April 9th, is being set aside for legislative visits with your representatives in their Capitol offices. Don't wait...make those appointments today! Meetings are best scheduled between 1:00PM and 5:00PM. Legislators' calendars fill up quickly so, to maximize your time and your legislator's schedule, we recommend that you coordinate meetings with other locals in your Assembly or Senate Districts. 

When you call Capitol offices to schedule meetings, ask for the legislator's scheduler and mention that you are calling in conjunction with the CPF's Legislative Conference. If the scheduler is unavailable, leave a message. Remember to get the scheduler's name so that you may follow-up with him or her if you do not receive a call back within two or three days.

In light of upcoming legislative deadlines, this is a busy time at the Capitol; so don't be discouraged if it takes more than one phone call to set an appointment - patience and persistence usually pay off!
