FMCA members throughout the United States and Canada serve as Government and Legislative Affairs Committee volunteers. These individuals have been trained to assist FMCA members as needed with parking rights and other government-related issues. For example, volunteers may:
- deliver written communications;
- appear before legislative committees hearing testimony on Senate or House bills;
- contact elected legislators to convey FMCA's position on matters that may affect members.
FMCA also has volunteer state chairpersons who live in or near state capital cities and run errands for the committee at their statehouse when legislation of importance to FMCA is under consideration.
The volunteer chairpersons sign in and deliver letters to legislative hearing secretaries and may research matters of interest to FMCA. They're always willing and able to help when called upon.
FMCA members can become FMCA Governmental and Legislative Affairs Committee volunteers. To learn more about volunteering or to contact a volunteer near you, send an e-mail to FMCA's Membership department at [email protected], call (800) 543-3622, or write to:
