Immediately after the meeting (or during the meeting, if there is a note taker), write down any information you learned about the legislator’s position or concerns so you can integrate it into your campaign plan.
Later, follow up with a thank-you note or email to the legislator and staff who attended, reminding him/her of the issues you presented. If the legislator agreed to support our issues, be sure to remind him/her of that commitment. Or, if you have not yet gotten a firm reply to the asks you had made, politely ask again in your thank-you letter. You may also want to share any pictures from the meeting. With regard to staff: remember that they can be real allies and often are not thanked by constituents, so they will greatly appreciate you taking the time to recognize their contributions to the meeting.
