One Week Until We Climb The Hill!

APRO’s 2019 Legislative Conference, scheduled for April 9-11 in Washington, D.C., is next week! Below are a few things to help you prepare for the big event.

Congress in Your Pocket App

This is a fantastic resource for all registered attendees that will make your meetings go smoothly and we look forward to hearing your feedback. This app puts Capitol Hill at your fingertips by featuring names, addresses, and emails of key staff, as well as a wealth of campaign information and a short biography. It also features an extensive database packed with information on congressional leaders, their staff, committee activities and the minutiae of the legislative process. You can sort by Congress, Senate, House, Freshmen, and Open Seats. The app will also allow you to coordinate notes based on your calls and meetings with APRO members and Capitol Hill staff. Click here to read more about all its features. Please email to request access if you have not received an email with login information.

Legislative Appointments Email

This week all 2019 Legislative Conference attendees will receive an email that will include the master list of appointments for meetings scheduled on The Hill. A follow-up email will also be sent to all attendees with updates to the master list with team information and links to some of the materials to help you prepare such as state economic impact reports, final legislative conference agenda, leave-behind story cards, and RTO @ a Glance with industry data.
