  • ​State your specific request in the subject line.
  • Stick to one topic.
  • Similar formatting applies to written testimony and correspondence.
  • If you are responding to a CAI call to action, try to reword the model talking points to personalize the conversation.
  • Use formal salutations in email.
  • Include your full name, company name and your home address in the body of the e-mail as officials mostly respond only to constituents.
