“The resource manual is designed to be a reference guide for baby boomers who are interested in educating members of Congress and their staff on the importance of baby boomer needs,” stated BBG President J K Dejon. “It helps advocates be familiar with the process and have a solid background on the issues before addressing members of Congress.”
The first section of the book, Understanding the Process, explains the basics of how legislation is introduced, considered and enacted by Congress.
Building Relationships with Congress offers tips for engaging your members of Congress by mail, by phone and in face-to-face meetings with staff. You will find all of the resources you need, including member lists according to term and key committees that work on baby boomer related issues.
The book concludes with a full House and Senate Directory, a listing of Useful Websites, a Map and a Glossary of Legislative Terms.
“The 2012 election will be a very important election,” said Dejon. “Baby boomers have the opportunity – and challenge – to educate and build relationships with new members of Congress as well as strengthen relationships with familiar faces. This guidebook is intended to be used as a reference guide. Be one of the first to have this valuable roadmap that will enable you to navigate the Congressional process and find your way around Capitol Hill.”
