The Pennsylvania Optometric Association is in the process of updating and fine-tuning its legislative contact (“Keyperson”) network. This is the network by which our grassroots – our members – contact legislators when there is an immediate need. To be politically effective, we need to establish records that indicate which POA members are contacting or will contact their Pennsylvania legislators whenever we have urgent Calls to Action or other important information. This will help us identify any gaps that we will need to fill by some other method. We also would like to know the level of your relationship with the legislators you typically contact and the type of contact you have with this legislator. Our database system will allow us to use this information internally to maximize our effectiveness. This information will not be shared outside the POA office.
Please complete a separate form for EACH legislator you know and contact. This is for both Pennsylvania Representatives or Senators and U.S. Congressmen.
