Do you know the right strategy for approaching congressional staffers?  
Hint: It’s less lion stalking its prey on the Serengeti, and more competent professional.

Congressional staffers influence, research, craft and write legislation that could have a huge impact on your association, nonprofit or corporation. So, it goes without saying, building a relationship with the right Hill workers for your industry is key. But how do you do it in a way that not only gets you in front of the people you want, but leaves behind the right impression to get your issue moving?

We asked 11 former staffers (and professionals who have to approach staffers) four questions:

  • Favorite way to be approached
  • Pet peeve
  • Worst memory of an approach
  • Best tip
We've compiled the results into a handy graphic guide that you can keep on hand for reference. Download it for free!
