The time between legislative sessions is a vital opportunity to continue to build relationships with legislators and help them learn about the great work of Iowa’s Community Colleges. Here are some ideas for how you can engage and help build a foundation of support for next session:
Send an email or call your legislator to thank them for supporting increased funding for Community Colleges this session.
Attend legislative fundraisers, forums, and other events and ask questions about their support for workforce and Community Colleges.
Invite legislators to tour campus or join you in touring a local business partner.
It’s important to get to know legislators, ask about their issues, and share our challenges when they are back home and thinking about their priorities for the next session.
