Effective talking points with local candidates

With federal midterm and local elections in November nearing, the month of August is an opportune time for health club owners and managers to meet with candidates and ask them to do what they can to support Americans who want to become more active - while supporting the interests of clubs.

Meanwhile, state and local candidates are likely hard on the campaign trail, as well.

So, if you’re game, and you wish to approach a federal or local candidate - at a public gathering, an in-office meeting, or even at your club - here are four questions and talking points that you might find helpful.

To see the questions, visit CBI magazine online.
