A Lobby Day (also referred to as a “legislative day” or “advocacy day”) is an organized event where members of your organization convene to meet with lawmakers to advocate for their policy objectives. Lobby Days require meticulous planning months in advance to handle logistics, such as scheduling meetings with lawmakers and arranging all member activities. While visiting the Capitol, your organization can make an impact by telling personal stories, relaying their legislative priorities, and swaying the hearts and minds of elected officials. A well-run lobby day offers a unique opportunity to participate in the legislative process and affect policy that will impact your organization and industry.
Securing a legislative meeting for a constituent is not always an easy task. On average, getting on the calendar at a legislative office takes six phone calls and/or emails, not including the inevitable need to re-schedule the day of. That's why so many meetings fall through the cracks, leaving Government Relations departments to come to a screeching halt in the weeks before a fly-in or advocacy day.
