In its role as an advocate for the industry, NCBFAA provides its members with the Write My Representative tool kit to assist individuals in contacting their representatives in Congress on matters of importance to the industry.
Below you will find a menu of topical requests you can copy, print, and mail, or email to Congress. These letters have been reviewed by NCBFAA Counsel to ensure they speak effectively to legislation that affects the industry and provide concrete actions your Congressional representatives can take on your behalf. In addition, each letter includes accompanying instructions for finding your representatives' contact information.
Please share this page with interested colleagues and check the Monday Morning eBriefing for updates on the latest grassroots advocacy opportunities for members.
