MEMA Enables Direct Connection to Members of Congress

New Advocacy Tool is Fast, Direct, and Connected

Date: January 19, 2021

Members of Congress need to hear directly from you.

They need to hear about the work you are doing and the role you play in the U.S. economy. They need to hear about your priorities and challenges.  In short, your voice is critical.

Our industry is the largest sector of manufacturing jobs in the United States. That is why MEMA has updated and enhanced existing tools, providing suppliers an easier way to contact policymakers about issues that are important to their businesses, employees, and their communities. The MEMA Action Center just rolled out a new advocacy vehicle that is fast, direct, and connected. You are your own best advocate. Share your voice and, together, we will amplify the voice of all vehicle suppliers.

You have the knowledge, experience… you are the expert… you know what is best for your company. But we know not every company has a government relations staff, and the process of connecting with elected officials can be intimidating at times. MEMA’s new on-line platform is a tool designed to make it easy and will provide valuable summaries of policies in the federal, state, and municipal governments that directly relate to you. Importantly, the Action Center gives you the ability to take quick action to influence public policy with simple click-and-send features. You can get started in less than a minute.

Having your voice heard on key policy decisions is as easy as sending a quick text message. Text the word “MEMA” to 52886, and you will be on your way. Enrollment takes a few moments.

“Policy makers continuously tell us they want to hear directly from members in their district to learn how policies will impact their business.” said MEMA President and CEO Bill Long. “MEMA ‘s Action Center makes it easy to educate and influence policies that affect your future.  A few minutes of your time can make a huge difference.”

 This is an important time to reach out to your legislators in the new 117th Congress. MEMA’s Action Center makes it easy – simply answer a few questions about your company and the service will automatically generate a prepared letter you can send to your elected officials. You do not need all the details – we do all that work for you. With a few clicks, you can introduce yourself and your business to policy makers who need to know about you and your place in your community. No additional steps are necessary.

Engaging is as easy as texting the word “MEMA” to 52886. You will receive a response with easy next steps in a few moments.
