Contact Your Elected Officials

 

The key to creating a more business friendly environment in Cabarrus rests in bringing the voice of the business community to the capitol. Your Chamber represents you as the "voice of business" in the halls of government, but if we are to fully accomplish our goals, the advocacy of many and the action of all are needed.

Your opinions and your voice are crucial in influencing the critical decisions of elected officials. When an important issue is being debated, even a small number of letters or phone calls can sway a legislator's determination. So when you hear that an issue important to your business is being considered out, please do not hesitate to contact your elected official(s).

The importance of personal contact cannot be overemphasized. Here are a few hints that will make your efforts more effective.

  • Before you contact your elected officials, make sure you are well informed about the issue.
  • Identify your concerns by bill number, legislation title or name. (Please contact the Chamber if you need more detailed information.)
  • Identify yourself by name and that you are a constituent.
  • Be courteous! Threatening or insulting remarks will not help your cause.
  • Be brief and to the point.
  • Send a "Thank you" note after your contact.

By Email
Email is a quick, easy way to communicate with your elected officials.

In Person
Schedule an appointment, and always be prompt and courteous.

By Phone
It is best to call the State Capitol before noon on Monday through Thursday. You can call Congress, County officials or City Hall any time during regular business hours. If your elected official cannot come to the telephone, leave a brief message, including your name, business, phone number, and concern(s).

By Mail
Write on business letterhead (if possible) and include your signature and typed name. Address letters to "The Honorable (insert name)" with title (i.e. Dear Senator, Councilman) in the salutation. Provide a brief explanation of how the issue affects you. One-page letters are most effective. Avoid formats and phrases that give the appearance of a form letter. Be sure to ask your legislator to state his or her position when replying.

For more information, please contact Deborah Carter, Vice President of Advocacy at 704-782-4000x8101 or dcarter@cabarrus.biz.
