How to Host a Successful Congressional Visit at Your Facility
May 13 2021
With summer recess approaching and members of Congress returning to their districts, now is the best time to start planning to host your elected official(s) for a tour of your facility.
We know that getting members of Congress to see our work firsthand impacts their work on Capitol Hill to ensure the voice of the ag retailer is heard loud and clear.
That is why ARA created the Congressional Facility Visit Guide with best practices and media samples to give you a step-by-step resource to hosting a successful visit that will pave the way for a lasting relationship with your elected officials.
The goal of inviting a member of Congress to tour your facility is to educate them and their staff about what your company is doing to support its employees, farmer customers, and the community.
Use this new ARA member resource to set your team up for a successful tour with your elected officials.
How to access this new resource and others:
Log in to the ARA Member Resource Library.
- Under "Advocacy Resources" click on "Congressional Facility Visit Guide" to view the links to open and save the new guide to your computer.
Email email@example.com if you need login support.
