Tips for Testifying

Testifying before Commission members can be intimidating but Commission members want to hear from you. Consider these tips as you prepare to appear in front of us.

  1. Do not read your testimony - instead summarize your key points.
  2. Keep your comments to about three minutes in fairness to others who also want to speak.
  3. Use a brief example to highlight your point.
  4. Bring copies of your written testimony.

For additional suggestions on how to best prepare to testify, we urge you to review this tip sheet.
