Face-to-Face with Congress: Before, During, and After Meetings with Legislators

August 24, 2016

A new study reveals guidance to citizens based on research with House and Senate staff for setting up, conducting, and following up after meetings with Members of Congress and their staff. "Face-to-Face with Congress: Before, During, and After Meetings with Lawmakers," released today at the Professional Women in Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C., is based on the Congressional Management Foundation's (CMF) work with Members of Congress, and includes the results of new surveys of House staff about how best to interact with lawmakers.

Key findings include:

  • 93% of House Schedulers surveyed indicated requests for meetings with lawmakers should be made 2-4 weeks in advance;
  • 71% of participating House Chiefs of Staff expressed "no preference" for meeting location (Washington, D.C. , versus the district);
  • 94% of the House Chiefs of Staff felt a "1-2 page issue summary" left behind after a meeting is somewhat or very helpful, while only 18% said the same of a "5 page or greater length" document.

The report also included staff comments about constituent meetings. "Our number one factor in scheduling a meeting is if a constituent is in the group," said one House Scheduler. "Constituents from our district take top priority over any other type of request."

The report is part of CMF's Partnership for a More Perfect Union, a program to help citizens have better communications with, understanding of, and relationships with Members of Congress.
