Frequently Asked Questions
What is Advocacy Day?
What does the day entail?
Wisconsin is currently controlled by a party I support. Do I still need to lobby my legislators?
I can’t afford to take a day away from my business. Is it really that important that I attend?
What can I accomplish face-to-face that I can’t do on the telephone?
How will I know what to say to my legislators?
The meetings are generally casual in nature – they will simply be conversations to share examples from your business. The best quality you bring to these meetings is just to be yourself, even if you’re nervous. You’re the expert on your own business, and that is what we want legislators to hear about.
