Are you planning a DC meeting, legislative conference, Fly- In, or Capitol Hill Day?
Try this effective technique for your meeting! McGuire has created elegant but affordable blank note cards (with envelopes) that associations and corporations give their meeting attendees upon arrival in DC. The sets of cards, not only act as a nice welcome gift, but they also make great 'thank you' cards, to Members of Congress after Capitol Hill visits.
Groups that are particularly savy have their conference attendees sit down and hand-write, 'thank you' notes–while they are still in Washington–to be sent to the various Member's offices' they visited.
The 'thank you' note is a powerful follow-up tool to keep your view in front of Congress. And, even in the era of digital media, the handwritten 'thank you' note shows impeccable manners, respect for the Member (and his or her position on The Hill) and a dedication to your advocacy. In short, your hand-written note commands attention, elevating it far above the mass mailings Members often receive.
McGuire suggests a set of 4 or 6 or 8 for each of your conference attendees! They can send some as 'thank you's' to Members and take the rest home as mementos of your conference! e-mail McGuire now for a sample set! firstname.lastname@example.org or call his cell 703 888-6320

"We purchased a set of McGuire's elegant DC photos in presentation folders as conference gifts, not only for our speakers, but for our attendees, too, who were all association CEO's.
The recipients were more than delighted. In addition to providing us the beautiful gifts, McGuire gave us lightning-quick turnaround, as our meeting was less than a week out."
