  2. Contact your legislator to ask if they would be interested in a tour and to find a date/time that works.

  3. Once the tour is scheduled, the IPA team can help you prepare for the meeting with materials to use on the tour.

Follow Up

After the tour, send a "thank you" note and follow-up on any questions that arose during the tour. Offer to serve as a resource on any pharmacy issues in the future.
