Just as you work to build a relationship with a customer, developing and maintaining relationships with your legislators is crucial to the success of your business.

An effective and sustained relationship with a Member of Congress and staff members in the Congressional office is built upon a foundation of personal communications and face-to-face exchanges. These must occur consistently over time so that the other communications that you will invariably need to use – letters, e-mails, phone calls, -- will have the kind of personal impact and value that can result in real action from the office in support of the issues of importance to you.
