Thank You for Another Great Advocacy Week!!
Thank you all for another great Advocacy Week! Over the course of the week we conducted more than 200 hill visits, covering delegations in 41 states! Now it’s time to start following-up from your Hill visits.
Knowing who you met with and how the meetings went is essential for Preservation Action and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officer’s continued advocacy. Reports from the Hill meetings allows us to help you. The reports take less than 10 minutes and can be completed easily online. A copy of the form was also included in your briefing packet, and can be downloaded here. Report forms can also be completed by hand and emailed to email@example.com or simply mailed to our office.
As preservationists return to the their home states as Hill veterans, Preservation Action is counting on grassroots activists to keep up at the advocacy!
