Hi All- any good tips or tricks for following up with a law maker after a meeting?
Regina Suitt
01:06:58
Meghan, the follow up is a great opportunity to share all your data and also invite them to something to see what you do. Relationship building is critical!
Regina Suitt
01:07:30
the formula is Story + Data + Relationships = successful advocacy
