NAA Advocate: What You Need To Know Before You Go
Scheduling Your Meetings
Advocate happens just once a year where hundreds of NAA members storm the Hill to share the rental housing industry's key Federal priorities with Congress. If you are not in charge of coordinating meetings on the Hill, your local association captain will contact you with meeting schedules.
Additionally, NAA has provided the following resources:
- How to schedule a meeting
- Sample meeting request letters for the Senate and House
- A list of Congressional Schedulers
Tracking Your Meetings
NAA has updated the meeting reporting process to make it easier for you, the attendee. You no longer need to provide the time of a specific meeting or the number/names of attendees. Now you can easily access the Meeting Reporting Log to document and follow the status of your association's meetings.
Please remember to submit your scheduled meetings no later than Friday, March 1.
Download the NAA Advocacy 365 Mobile App
NAA has provided you with the Advocacy 365 Mobile App; this app is a great tool to quickly access information about the members of Congress you will meet with, as well as keep you headed in the right direction with maps and talking points for Lobby Day.
