Every Member Counts: Strive for 535

Our Goal: Reach All 535 Congressional Offices!

Thank you for being an industry advocate by scheduling a meeting with your member of Congress during the 2016 NAA Capitol Conference and Lobby Day. Your participation will support the apartment industry’s goal to reach all 535 Congressional offices!
Please Report Your Scheduled Meetings to Us

It’s important that we hear from you to ensure that every Congressional office has been reached. We also collect this information to promote the industry’s meetings and arrange photography. Please contact Peter Fromknecht, Manager, Grassroots Advocacy to report your meeting, whether it takes place in Washington, D.C., or in the member of Congress’s home district.

Scheduling Your Meetings

If you are in charge of scheduling meetings, you will find the contact information for Congressional schedulers here. When introducing your association in your meeting request, please explain how you are affiliated with your local/state association and NAA. If you are not in charge of coordinating meetings on the Hill, please contact the NAA-affiliated association in your area for meeting dates and times.

Sample meeting request letters for the House and Senate are provided for your use.

NAA and NMHC will conduct a webinar to brief Capitol Conference participants on the Lobby Day issues.

It is a “must” for anyone who has scheduled meetings but will not be at the issues briefing on March 8.

The webinar is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET Wednesday, Feb. 17.  If you are participating in the Capitol Conference or scheduling in-district meetings with your member of Congress and have not received a link to register, please contact Peter Fromknecht.

The NAA/NMHC webinar will be recorded and posted here.
