Stay Involved

Stay involved in community college advocacy activities and keep informed about ACCT legislative activities. Check theACCT website regularly for the latest developments.

Respond to ACCT's Legislative Alerts and keep the ACCTPublic Policy staff informed of congressional feedback you get in response to your letters or telephone calls to the Hill.

Invite your Member of Congress to visit your campus and speak at a college event. Be prepared to show your legislator programs and/or equipment obtained with federal resources; arrange for your legislator to visit with students who use federal student aid to help them attend. Invite the press to cover the legislator's visit.

Work at building an ongoing relationship with your legislators: Attend town meetings hosted by your legislators when they are at home in their districts. Visit regularly with them in their local offices.
