Academy Plans Active Grassroots Advocacy Network in 2018
After an active 2017, the Academy’s Government Relations Committee and PAC Advisory Board are looking to continue the positive momentum by expanding the Grassroots Advocacy Network. In addition to opportunities to attend local PAC events, similar to the event for Rep. John Garamendi in January, the members of the Grassroots Advocacy Network will receive monthly messages with key updates on issues, advocacy tips, and other opportunities for action. Additionally, the Network will continue to receive messages when urgent Congressional action is needed on an issue that will impact audiology. The Academy’s Grassroots Advocacy Network was created to help foster relationships between audiologists and their Congressional representatives so that the audiologist’s perspective is considered when Congress debates issues that will impact the profession or hearing health care. The Academy encourages all members to sign-up for these monthly updates to stay involved with the Academy’s advocacy efforts. Please contact associate director of government relations Adam Finkel with any questions.
