Hosting a meeting

Hosting a member of Congress at your lab and institution can be an excellent way to demonstrate the importance of federal funding for scientific research. You will have direct access to the member and his/her staff for a period of time in which you can talk about the exciting research being done at your institution and how NIH funding is important for researchers as well as the entire community.

To get started, contact your institution's governmental affairs office to discuss the best way to set up a meeting. If needed, ASBMB is willing to help make contact with the office and send materials to help the meeting go smoothly.
