What Our Visitors Say
“Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your site. I believe this is our 8th time staying at the Washington Seminar Center!  It’s always been such a wonderful experience staying at your church. It’s nice because the students have more together time than they would at a regular hotel. ”

Meet Your Federal Representatives

Your visit to Washington, DC is an excellent opportunity to meet with the people who represent you in Congress.  The opportunity to meet with a Senator or Representative will greatly depend on his or her schedule.However, if timing doesn’t allow for an in-person meeting, you can certainly visit their office and meet with their staff.

Here is how to set up a visit.

  1. To find your Representative, go to the U.S. House of Representatives website.   To find your Senators, go to the U.S. Senate website.
  2. Call your representative and two senators, introduce your group and request a meeting – if he or she is not available, then meet with one of the staffers.  (Read this for more tips on preparing for a meeting.)
  3. So what to discuss when you get there?  Thomas.gov is an invaluable resource that can help you see exactly what bills are before Congress and how your Representatives are voting on them.

Bonus: Representatives usually have a certain number of Capitol and White House tour passes reserved for their constituents.  Be sure to ask the staff about availability when scheduling your visit.
