How to communicate with Congress: An in-depth look at the Congressional Communications Report

Communicating with lawmakers has changed dramatically over the years and the Congressional Communications Report has been there helping the association and government relations community change along with it. Columbia Books, the publishers of the Original U.S. Congress Handbook and Washington Representatives have teamed with Dr. David Rehr and the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University to bring you the largest, most in-depth study of its kind on the work habits of Congressional staff and the lobbying community.

The Report compiles insights from Congressional staff and those working to influence them on how best to get a message through to Members of Congress. The Report overlays these insights with expert analysis of shifts in technology and social media to bring you a complete understanding of what works and what doesn’t when you are communicating with Capitol Hill.

In this session, led by Dr. Rehr, we will review the results of the report and their impact on the advocacy/government relations community. Dr Rehr is not only an expert researcher, he is also a former association executive with extensive experience working with elected officials and brings all that to bear in the report. The Congressional Communications Report is packed with information accompanied by full-color charts and ready to use data points that will change the way you do business with Capitol Hill.
