Register Now for the Members Only NLBMDA Webinar: Making Grassroots Advocacy Work

On July 7 at 2:00 p.m. EDT, NLBMDA will host a webinar titled Making Grassroots Advocacy Work. Whether you are a seasoned political observer or just looking for a way to be more engaged with your lawmakers, there is valuable information for everyone. Learn the different ways you can interact with your lawmakers and their staff to build and maintain relationships.

As part of its strategic plan, NLBMDA is working with dealers and Federated Associations to help strengthen its grassroots advocacy efforts. Grassroots are part of a successful government relations program—along with lobbying and political action—and getting involved is easier than you think.  

Members of Congress want to hear from constituents that operate businesses, create jobs and help strengthen communities. Knowing what really matters to you, what's happening in your local area or across the state is what really counts on Capitol Hill. Take advantage of all the tools NLBMDA has available to advance the public policy priorities of the LBM industry.

This webinar is a benefit of membership through your State and Regional Associations.
