Van Vechten, 37
NOW: Look for an area on the website where you can figure out what legal
issues they care about and work on.
Chances are they have a specific area on their website called ADVOCACY,
LEGISLATION, ACTION, or something of that nature. You want to explore the links
and search the website carefully, especially those that might give you an idea about the issues
they care about. These might be called: Member Action, Bills, Laws, Lobbying, Legislation,
Action Links, and so forth
o If there is no specific area that talks about actual bills they have sponsored,
support, or oppose, then look in the Press Room, Press Releases, News, Action,
Issues and Activities sections (the names are different on websites) so that you
can get a good sense of what issues matter, and where they would logically push
for changes in the law. That s what you, as a lobbyist, will be doing: representing
THEIR interests to a member of Congress. Get to know their interests as well as
you can.
If you find an association that doesn t advocate for any issues, then you
can t represent it.
For example: IF you clicked on:
Activities of amusement and diversion.
& And then chose:
Activities governed by rules or customs, often undertaken
competitively, usually involving physical exertion and skill.
& And then clicked on:
Martial arts, etc.
...And then went to:
& And then clicked on that weblink, you d find the United States
Armwrestling Federation. If you entered their site, however, you d find
that they offer schedules of tournaments, news, and entertainment, but NO
information on issues or legislation they re interested in advocating,
promoting, or stopping. This is not an organization you can represent.
STEP TWO: GO to OPENSECRETS.org to find out where your organization
has donated campaign funds.
