Policy Corner: Take Action using ACSM Advocacy Toolkit

During the month of August, Members of Congress typically spend less time in Washington, DC, and more time in their respective districts and states to listen to and work with constituents. This presents ACSM members with a great opportunity to meet with their members of Congress in the district to increase awareness of and funding for programs dealing with physical activity and active lifestyles. Advocacy is the key to getting Congress to take action on the issues that are important to all ACSM members.

To this end, ACSM's policy team has created an Advocacy Toolkit to walk you through the process of meeting with your member of Congress. The toolkit includes everything you need from how to set up the meeting, what to say during the meeting and how to follow up after the meeting. In addition, ACSM staff will be there every step of the way to help answer any questions you may have during the process. If you are interested in meeting with your member of Congress during the month of August, please review the Advocacy Toolkit and contact Monte Ward at mward@acsm.org. more
