Helping Get the Word Out & Finding Your Representative
We appreciate your support of our industry as we begin this important year of our State House legislative agenda.
Please take a few minutes from your busy schedule to do our association a favor as we take inventory of our membership’s relationships with members of the South Carolina General Assembly. Please go to the following link and click on the find your legislator link at the bottom left – http://www.scstatehouse.gov/ or use http://votesmart.org/.
Then, enter your mailing address (where you are registered to vote). This will produce a listing of your State Senator and State Representative. Please let the SSASC know if you know your legislators – or if you know any other members of the SC General Assembly. A simple e-mail or comment through this site listing any members you know personally would be a big help to SCSSA as we take inventory of the personal relationships our members have with legislators.
This information will be very helpful to SSASC as we continue to broaden the scope of our legislative agenda, as there will be times when a call, e-mail or letter from an SSASC member to an individual legislator could be very important to advancing legislation of importance to our industry. Grass roots political communication is an important part of our lobbying effort.
Meeting with Legislators
Schedule a meeting with your local legislator. Be prepared, as you may only have a limited amount of time. Prepare with notes that anticipate which questions will be asked. Remember, legislators are busy and may have to meet with many constituents in a given day, so be as concise as possible.
If you’re discussing legislation over the phone, be even more concise.
Also, when possible, follow up each phone call with a letter or email as a helpful reminder to your busy legislators of who you are and what you discussed. This is especially helpful with complicated or technical issues and when the legislator needs to contact you with follow up questions.
Writing Letters and Emails
Letters are a classic venue for contacting legislators, and can be effective, especially as part of a concerted effort. Keep your letters simple, but remember to state who you are and provide reference as to why this is an important concern for you. Always close the letter with a call to action in terms of what you would like the legislator to do (vote for a bill, vote against a bill, reconsider platform or policy).
