Science on Speed Dial Part 2: One-on-One Relationship-Building Meetings with Legislators

In June, we began facilitating individual meetings between you and your state legislators where you live and/or practice. We are covering both Kansas and Missouri. These meetings are not for lobbying any particular issues or legislation, but just to lay the foundation and find common interests. The goal is to have the legislator recognize you as a resource.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You register to join a meeting.
  2. We identify your legislators.
  3. We provide a mutual introduction and discussion guide.
  4. You hold the meeting according to your schedule and the legislators’–in person or via Zoom.
  5. You report back on how it went.

Legislators tell us they want these type of get-acquainted meetings. They are looking for people in their districts who can provide expertise to help them evaluate proposed legislation. This is your opportunity to build the groundwork for an ongoing relationship with your local senator and/or representative!
