Congratulate and Welcome Your Legislators!
Now that the New Year has begun, this is great time to reach out to your legislators to introduce yourself and TAND. You can find your legislators by reviewing the TN General Assembly Site. You can also find Tennessee’s members of Congress (House and Senate) by reviewing the US Congress Site. Finally, the Academy has a sample letter template you can download and customize to send to your elected officials.
