Meetings with congressional offices can take place either in Washington DC or locally (known as in-district meetings).
To request a meeting with your Members of Congress, the best place to start is their website. Calling the Washington DC office is often the fastest option, but most congressional offices also have a link to schedule a meeting in the 'Constituent Services' or 'Contact Us' tab on their website.
The first few meetings with your Members of Congress will likely be with congressional staff rather than lawmakers themselves.
Because congressional staff are such an essential part making legislative decisions and controlling access to lawmakers, it is essential to build relationships with legislative aides.
If you are meeting with your Members of Congress in Washington DC, it is best to request a meeting with the Legislative Director of Foreign Policy Legislative Aide.
If you are setting up a meeting in-district, it is best to request a meeting with the Chief of Staff, or another staff member who can speak to the issues and relate your concerns to the office in DC. When meeting in-district, the staff member should provide you with the Legislative Director or Foreign Policy Legislative Aide's contact information so you can follow-up directly.
