Why host a plant tour? Essentially, the plant tour gives your elected officials an opportunity to gain greater insights into your business and to hear about industry issues firsthand. The plant tour is a terrific opportunity to educate our elected officials and to give them a chance to see how their laws work in real life! Plant tours can offer a real "win–win" opportunity for both the legislator and the company providing the tour. This pamphlet is designed to help you prepare for and conduct a successful plant tour.

CDA is happy to assist our members in hosting a plant tour. It is important to be as flexible as possible when scheduling these visits and, if possible, to have a few options for dates. Usually, the plant tour will be arranged by the office scheduler and because of the hectic schedule of many lawmakers, sometimes there are last-minute changes that may occur so a host should be prepared for such alterations.

Thank you in advance for getting involved and for recognizing the importance of maintaining and building a solid relationship with your elected officials!
