Leave Behind Materials when meeting with Elected Officials

There’s an old saying in Washington: “You’re only as effective as the paper you leave behind.” Translated into beyond-the-beltway- speak, this means that a successful lobbyist (professional or amateur) must write and leave behind documents that are clear, concise, and memorable. This best practices guide provides some recommendations about how to write advocacy documents that get read and not discarded.

Check out all the Best Practice Guides at http://www.land-grant.org/ but as your
team begins to form here’s a quick look at “what to leave behind” http://www.land-grant.org/docs/guides/LBM.pdf
