NAMA’s grassroots advocacy efforts include leadership and industry volunteer participation at all levels of government: federal, state and local. For 2018, NAMA is adding an expanded focus on our state grassroots efforts through an increase in state association activity and lobby days at state capitols. To that end, NAMA has created the NAMA Grassroots website to assist state associations with their lobby day logistics. The website will provide structure and consistency for state lobby days across the country, using the DC Fly-In as a model. This will lead to an increase in participation from industry volunteer leaders and more impactful events that promote and protect the industry with state elected officials.
How it works
The consistency of the message to state legislatures is key to the effectiveness of advocacy on the state level. NAMA will assist state associations to lay the foundation for a more efficient and successful advocacy effort.
