Thank you for registering with the Private Equity Growth Capital Council’s Action Center and for your interest in contacting your member of Congress to speak about the benefits that private equity investment delivers to companies and communities.  Welcome!

Private equity is often misunderstood and we believe that your willingness to reach out to your member of Congress can play a crucial role in helping to set the record straight. And now is a good time.

There are several ways to interact with Congress, and the Private Equity Growth Capital Council stands ready to assist you in reaching out.  You can:

  • Send an email to your Senator or Representative about private equity issues
  • Invite your member of Congress to visit one of your portfolio companies
  • Meet with your member of Congress in Washington, D.C.

Again, thank you for your interest in contacting your member of Congress.

If you have questions about this Congressional Outreach Tool Kit or if you would like to explore specific opportunities for your firm to meet with lawmakers on Capitol Hill or in your home state, please contact Chris Krueger, Director of Grassroots & Outreach, at CKrueger@pegcc.org or at 202.465.7703.
