FOLLOWING UP AFTER THE TOUR A plant tour enhances the mutual understanding between you and your elected official. To make certain that he or she remembers your company, follow-up efforts are important. SEND THANK-YOU NOTE TO GUEST(S) Write a thank-you note reiterating any key issues discussed during the tour. Invite the legislator to return at any time. Consider inviting your legislator to your company's annual picnic or other outing. THANK YOUR OWN STAFF Recognize employees who contributed their time and expertise to make the tour a success. SEND PHOTOS TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS Many times photos you send to members of Congress will appear in a constituent newsletter, and often they will wind up on the legislator's office wall or website. TELL NWPCA ABOUT THE TOUR To help the NWPCA assist other companies, tell us how the tour went. Send us photos and press clippings. E-mail your information to the NWPCA's Vice President-Advocacy and External Affairs. PROVIDE PRESS COVERAGE Provide the lawmaker's office with your company newsletter and other publicity the visit generated. USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO RECAP THE TOUR Publish photos, details, etc., on company social media platforms. Coordinate with the NWPCA's Communications team to post on any NWPCA platforms. CONTINUE TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE LAWMAKER POST EVENT Offer the member substantive policy advice. Track how your legislator votes on future legislation, and express your thanks when he or she votes in favor of your positions. 12
