The purpose of this report is to provide research-based guidance for scheduling, conducting, and following up after office meetings with Members of Congress and staff. To develop this advice, CMF used information collected through its long history working with congressional offices and data from surveys conducted with congressional staffers, primarily from the House of Representatives, between 2010 and 2013. Included in the survey were open-ended questions that allowed staffers to report candidly and anonymously on aspects of constituent meetings that they would never reveal to constituents, convey to lobbyists, or whisper to reporters.
