Washington Leadership Training Institute Congressional Appointments

WLTI 2012The 2013 WLTI will be held September 21-25 at the Hyatt Dulles in Herndon, Va. A flier with more information is located online at this link.

On Tuesday, September 24, 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 departs at 3 p.m.) Appointments need to be set up ahead of time. A sample letter  you can modify for your state appointments can be found here.

We suggest delegations first fax the appointment request letter and follow it up with a phone call. Letters sent by mail may take a month to reach Congressional offices because of security systems. But, if you do send a letter, please write or type the address – don’t use a label. The label will be blackened because all congressional mail goes through an irradiation process. And, don’t rely on an email invitation. Congress is receiving a massive amount of emails right now, so there is a good chance it could be overlooked, depending upon the office.

If you have questions or need information about how to contact your members of

Congress, contact Jane Short at 703-737-0612 or by email at: jshort@skillsusa.org.
