Each year, FMC invites all Former Members of Congress to return to our nation's Capitol, to join us in making our report to Congress. This report, mandated by our Congressional Charter, is delivered in the well of the United States House of Representatives, and is often received by majority and minority leadership. Then, Former Members are able to attend panels and other discussion and education opportunities, to learn more about the issues critical to our nation. Often, the Annual Meeting has been accompanied by a memorial service for Members of Congress who pass away between Annual Meetings.
FMC engages Former Members of Congress who have returned home, or otherwise left Washington, DC, through Regional Meetings that allow Former Members who live throughout the United States to keep contact with their colleagues from nearby. These Regional Meetings allow for Former Members to build ladders of bipartisanship to their community through roundtable discussions, seminars and mini-Congress to Campus opportunities.

FMC STUDY TOURS
Former Members of Congress still have a great deal to offer the leadership of nations outside the United States. With centuries of combined legislative experience, Former Members are frequently requested by academic institutions, businesses and other organizations, as well as by foreign governments, to provide knowledge about politics in the United States, the work being done by Congress, how to deal with groups in the United States, and how our form of government came to be. Former Members have travelled all over the world to spread our message of civility and democracy.
