Rochester on Tour Adopt-a-Legislator

It is time to put our Adopt-a-Legislator volunteer team together for the 2008 trip to the capital. If you have volunteered in the past and wish to participate again this year, please email Becky Gehling at the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce at bgehling@rochestermnchamber.com. If you enjoyed contacting legislators and would like to invite a friend to be a volunteer, we will be holding a meeting to answer any questions you may have. Notice of this meeting will go out once we have our volunteers confirmed.

Here is a recap on details for you & your friends:
With Rochester on Tour-2008 just around the corner, the date has been set for March 12, 2008. Last year we had many members participate in our Adopt-a-Legislator program. Individuals who participated in this program contacted legislators statewide encouraging them to attend the Rochester on Tour Grand Reception to learn more about our community. We would like to invite you to participate this year by adopting three legislators. Last years event was a huge success and we look forward to another great year, but we will need your help.

This is a simple 4-step process with all materials, notes, envelopes, and addresses supplied to you by the Chamber.

1. First, you will be asked to make 1 phone call or e-mail

2. Second, you will schedule a meeting with your legislator for the day of the event, or prior to the day of the event.

3. Third, you will send out a reminder note (provided by the Chamber) a week prior to the event.

4. Fourth, after the event, send a thank you note (provided by the Chamber).

Please consider participating in this valuable program.To participate, please contact Becky Gehling by email at bgehling@rochestermnchamber.com.
