Scheduling Your Hill Visits
If you're planning on attending Capitol Leadership, be sure to read the instructional guide for scheduleing your hill visits here. When you have scheduled all of your visits, also be sure to report your visits to National FCCLA at the following link: http://bit.ly/fcclahillvisit.
To help in your scheduling, be sure to reference the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center map here . Make sure that you have enough time between your visits to get from one building to another (crossing from Independence to Constitution Avenue will take anywhere from 10-15 minutes depending on traffic, so keeping a 1/2 hour window between visits is a good rule of thumb.)
