In our constant effort to keep you up-to-date and involved in the current legislative events and issues that affect your industry, we have added another informational source and feature to our web site. Legislative Action Center “Capwiz” is a link on our legislative page that provides grassroots advocacy products and services.
Some of the Capwiz features include:
Elected Officials: With just a zip code and postal address you can find out about who represents you at the federal, state and local levels and send messages to those officials.
Legislative Alerts: MITA will utilize the alerts portion with regard to key state and federal legislative issues to broadcast pertinent information and possible member “contact your elected official” action when needed.
You will also find located in the “Issues” area Tips for Communicating with Congress and State elected officials.
Media Guide: Through the media guide you will find media outlets in your area (daily newspapers, many community newspapers, radio stations, television stations, magazines and political publications) and send letters to the editor or coverage request to reporters and editors.
MITA will continue to issue our legislative bulletins, but would like for you to view our Legislative Action Center (Capwiz) link for information regarding our industry in both Lansing and Washington D.C. Just click here and begin to receive breaking industry news and to utilize this great resource.
“The first step to getting involved is being informed.”
