    Most effictive are:

  1. Letters
  2. Phone Calls
  3. Faxes
    and least effictive is
  4. E-mails
  • Keep to One Topic: Keep your conversation focused on one subject while hitting the three strongest points on that subject.
  • Plan What You Are Going to Say: Print or write out your talking points to help you plan what you are going to say.
  • Reference the Officials Position:  Remind and familiarize them with their opposition and urge them to do something to support Vacation Rentals.  If they have done anything helpful, thank them, and urge them to do more.
  • Personalize Your Call: If you have a personal story that is relevant, or you have voted for or have met the elected official, be sure to mention it in your conversation.
