Never talked to a legislator before? Here are some helpful suggestions.

- Familiarize legislators with your dealership, the franchise system and your dealership’s services.
- Explain to the legislator the car dealer business environment in California and the benefits you provide to your customers.
- Introduce the legislator to employees.
- Create a steady stream of communication that allows future correspondence. Your legislator will rely on you as a source of information and advice.
