Default lawmaker meetings

dear friends,

hopefully many of you are actively trying to meet or otherwise contact your lawmakers with the active assistance of your state chapters.
in the MN-MW group we had a first lawmaker meeting today and another one is scheduled for tomorrow. we feel that feedback on such meetings may be very beneficial to all. i am however uncertain about posting this on a public forum. advice from the core on this matter would be helpful. also, core members - would you like to be briefed on these meetings? how would you like us to do this? after these two meetings, a conference call may be beneficial, if core members can be present. like minded members from other chapters could also be invited.
please post views on this matter. thanks!

Default positive

short meeting but very encouraging response
asked for all the supporting documents- i had taken a packet, they promised to get back with any questions within a week and then create a policy document to forward to the DC office. the lawmaker expressed full support for highly skilled immigrants.

Thanks for the effort. Hope more members follow you.
pls inform other members when you meet a lawmaker. Try not to name them on the forum. Otherwise next day you may see several anti-immigrants at their doorstep.
tell some good pointers to other members and encourage them to continue the 'meet the lawmakers' drive. Organize conference call and share your experience. Answer any question, any member has regarding 'meet the lawmaker' based on your experience.

Seperately inform core team (send email to info at immigrationvoice.org) and tell us which lawmaker you met and what was your experience. Sometimes we maybe meeting/try to renew the contact with that lawmaker in DC/or will try to take a follow up appointment and use your feedback and your meeting to our advantage.
