It is very easy to participate in a Take Your Legislator to Work event. For instance, recently The Equitable Bank and Citizens Bank, Mukwonago hosted an event with Congressman Bryan Steil. Here’s an outline of the agenda the bankers used:
- Bio of the legislator (provided by WBA)
- Talking points/issues (provided by WBA)
- Recent news on the legislator (provided by WBA)
- Local issues (The bankers came prepared to talk about things happening in their communities in terms of the local economy, business leaders, and the bank)
That’s it. Most of the legwork is done by WBA staff. The bankers simply talk about what’s happening in the area... which is fantastic because that’s what the legislator wants to hear!
Bringing your legislator into your office also checks off one of the criteria for your bank to qualify for the Bankers Involved in Grassroots and Government (BIGG) Award.
