Congressional Directories Make Networking Easier

Last Updated November 18, 2022

Knowing the right people to contact on Capitol Hill is essential to effectively advocate for the issues that matter most to your organization. Tracking the comings and goings of Members of Congress and congressional staff can be complicated – even more so as Congress sees an unusually high rate of turnover among their staff amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Congressional directories can be an important resource for government affairs professionals who need direct contact information for Members of Congress and their staff. But if the directory you’re using offers little more than a congressional yellow book of email addresses and phone numbers, you’re missing out on valuable contextual information.

Bloomberg Government offers access anytime, anywhere to the most up-to-date contact information and essential background research you need to effectively network.

More than a congressional lookup

Bloomberg Government’s congressional directory and congressional staff contact information help ease the burden of maintaining a current contact list. We do the work for you by updating our directories daily to make sure you find the right people.

Our comprehensive directories are more than just a congressional yellow book, offering additional details such as:

  • Photos of each congressmember
  • Concise biography and career highlights
  • Summaries and status of sponsored bills
  • Recent news, press releases, and transcripts
  • Chart of votes and stats about overall voting records
  • Plus, email addresses and phone numbers for every U.S. Senator and House member

Use our variety of filters to quickly narrow your potential contacts by criteria such as committee staffs within Congress, a congressional leadership directory, educational history, and party.

In addition to congressional directories, we offer state legislative directories, as well as searchable lists of federal agency contacts and government affairs professionals.

Go beyond phone numbers and email addresses for U.S. Senators and House Members

Once you narrow down your potential contacts, let us tell you all about them – from personal bios to voting records. Our directories offer much more than a simple congressional lookup of phone numbers and email addresses for senators and congressmen.

Open a member’s profile, and you’ll find an easily navigable menu of options: Latest tweets, biography, news, committee assignments, staff, sponsored legislation, and votes.

  • The biography section includes bios featured on members’ websites, as well as personal and educational backgrounds, and full career records.
  • In the news section, check out the latest articles featuring your selected congressperson from more than 35,000 sources.
  • The committees and caucuses section links out to Bloomberg Government’s in-depth coverage of congressional committees and caucuses.
  • Find congressional staff contact information for staffers based in Washington, D.C., and in the members’ district offices.
  • Read quick summaries of legislation sponsored by the member or follow the links to Bloomberg Government’s legislative tracking tool for full coverage.
