Fly-ins are one of the most effective ways for associations to advocate. When your members go to the Hill, they instantly transform your issues from stats into memorable stories. Memorable stories from real people, especially in their districts, can leave a lasting impact on lawmakers.
Executing a successful fly-in involves many moving pieces. These include finding compelling speakers, scheduling and last-minute rescheduling of congressional meetings, crafting talking points and leave-behinds, educating members, following up and building relationships.
Influencing change and seeing satisfaction from your members as they realize the role their voice plays in government makes it all worth it.
