YES, THERE ARE LOBBYISTS

November 2, 2011

Supporters of various causes and issues will be lobbying delegates for their votes in the months leading up to General Conference.  Once who the delegates and first reserves from each annual conference are known, contact is made by e-mail, USPS mail, and phone calls appealing for support for legislation and actions anticipated to come before the upcoming General Conference.  During the General Conference, those interest groups will frequently have multiple members on-site, providing literature, demonstrations, and hallway button-holing of the voting delegates.  United Methodists have mastered the art of politicking as well as their secular legislative counterparts.
