LM prepared these excellent talking points, along with a useful list of links, for a meeting with her Member of Parliament. In the talking points, she incorporated her ideas and those which other Brockers suggested to her last week.
Please feel free to use this template, as-is or as a starting-off point, in preparing for your meeting with your MP — or with any other persons you may be educating about the FACTA IGA.
If you have suggestions on this topic, please add suggestions them on this thread.
If you create a template (or adapt from this one) or create a link list, please send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll upload it and link to it here. A letter you write to your MP is also useful to others, so please post here or send to me by e-mail.
Also, please report on your meetings here (or e-mail me and I’ll upload and link to it). We’d like to compile these reports as we’ve been doing with consulate reports.
Thanks very much, LM for this template! And thanks in advance to others who’ll be commenting on this thread and/or providing templates and reports.
