WLTI Congressional Appointments
On Tuesday, September 22, the students and advisors attending WLTI will have time to go to Capitol Hill and visit with their Senators and Representatives between 10:15 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. (The bus leaves at 3 p.m.) Appointments need to be set up ahead of time. A sample letter is available here
You are also welcome to use the SkillsUSA Champions Advocacy Site. You can download the sample letter – make your edits – and then you or your WLTI delegate can upload your letter to request appointments. You can access the site from the link above. From there, you plug in the zip codes and the rest is self-explanatory.
Note: letters sent by mail may take a month to reach Congressional offices because of security systems. We suggest those requesting appointments do so by e-mail or fax and then follow up with a phone call.
If you have questions, or need information about how to contact your representative, contact Jane Short at 703-737-0612 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
