The 114th Congress begins its first session

This month, new policymakers were sworn into office and began the work of representing their constituents on Capitol Hill. The Performing Arts Alliance (PAA) looks forward to building relationships with new members of the 114th Congress and educating them about the role and value of the nonprofit performing arts in America.

House and Senate committee and subcommittee assignments will be finalized soon; PAA will provide you with a list of assignments so that you can find out where your representatives are serving. In the meantime, we encourage you to introduce your organization and its work to your legislators. Start building relationships by writing a letter, making a phone call, or scheduling a meeting–especially if your Representative or Senator is new to office. Use the PAA advocacy toolkit for tips on connecting with your leaders.
