Whether you're greeting a member of the House of Representatives or the Senate in person, formally introducing them to others or writing them a letter, it's important to know the appropriate etiquette for addressing a member of the General Assembly.

First, remember that they are people just like you, so DO NOT be nervous when talking with them. Second, when addressing a representative personally, address him or her as ‘Representative” followed by the representative's last name, and when addressing a Senator personally, address him or her as ‘Senator” followed by the Senator's last name. Third, let them know who you are and why you decided to go into the profession of Speech Language Pathology. Let them know what you are learning and what you plan on doing as it relates to the profession once you graduate, whether it be in public or private practice. Most importantly, remember to be yourself.

Please remember to wear something SCSHA Blue and to be presentable the day of SCSHA Legislative Day. Lastly, please be social with legislators, not just the students from the other schools. This is a great opportunity to talk one on one with law makers in our state and they need to hear from you how excited you are to be going into this profession!
