  6. Be willing to join NFIB staff at the Capitol to attend committee hearings on small business issues. Personal testimonials are crucial in getting the vote of a legislator.

  8. Do not be afraid to call or email your legislator and let them know who you are. You are their constituent, you elect them, and you should call on them.

  9. Attend NFIB legislative meetings in your area.
