Being an Effective Legislative Coordinator
  • Understand the importance of your office.
    How you feel about it will come across to the members.
    You make it what you want and get out what you put in.
  • Be prepared.
    Become well informed.
    Never say, "Nothing has happened this month."
    Use chapter newsletter to reach those who don’t make the meetings.

    Learn who their legislators are and how to contact them.
    Letter writing.
