If you want to ensure the participants get called for every event, you can create a VIP list. This list is added to Telephone Town Hall just like any other list, only it should be entitled "VIP." The list should be formatted with a Phone column and a Name column. (These are the only required fields, although you can add additional information.) The VIP list is dialed first for Telephone Town Hall events.
When scheduling your event, be sure to note whether or not you are submitting a VIP list.
If you have additional list instructions, be sure to include them when completing the sign up form.
Due to FCC regulations, we must scrub mobile phone numbers from all events unless you're a member of Congress who has signed our mobile authorization agreement (email firstname.lastname@example.org for your copy), or your office can provide tangible proof of prior express consent of the contact.
An example of this could be a website form that is used to collect phone data from constituents prior to an event. The form must contain a disclaimer indicating that the constituent consents to receive autodialed and/or pre-recorded telephone calls on behalf of your office at the telephone number provided on the form.

Sample disclaimer text: I hereby consent to receive autodialed and/or pre-recorded telephone calls from or on behalf of [Organization Here] at the telephone number provided, for the purpose of participating in this Telephone Town Hall meeting.
