And So It Begins Again

That’s right…in Florida the 2018 Legislative Session begins on January 9th. Call me crazy but I believe it’s one of the most exciting times each year in the Sunshine State. The atmosphere in Tallahassee is electric, and there are conversations on every corner about politics and policies.

For advocates, this is the time to reaffirm your relationships and earn the support of lawmakers that you’ve met with throughout the year. So over the next few weeks I’ll share some tips and observations on how to do just that…even on very short notice or when you only get 10 minutes (or less) to share your message.

So as the new year gets underway, perhaps make one more resolution. Make a commitment to being the best advocate you can be in 2018.

Here’s a great tip to get the session started in a positive direction. Lawmakers love to hear from their constituents during session. Send them and their staff a quick note wishing them well. And be sure to provide your name, contact information, address and legislative district.
