Congress is in Session This Week. How Are You Communicating With Them?

via the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB)

Though many eyes are on the race for president, Congress is at work in D.C. and they need to hear from you. What have you done this week that impacts their constituents (your viewers and listeners)? An easier question might be, what haven’t you done?

Remember, your legislators need to know the many ways you are serving your community. If it’s an investigative report, a charity event or emergency coverage, don’t be shy about educating them.

Use social media to communicate with your members of Congress, and include the hashtag #WeAreBroadcasters so NAB can amplify your efforts.
