NATCA in Washington (NiW) is only a few days away, and NATCAvists are gearing up to make a difference in our nation’s capital in more ways than one.
NATCA takes a comprehensive approach to its legislative and political program. The team is guided by NATCA’s national leadership (the President, Executive Vice President, and Regional Vice Presidents), and includes National Office staff in the Executive Office, Government Affairs, Public Affairs, Safety and Technology, and Labor Relations departments; the NLC, which is composed of one appointed member from each region; state legislative coordinators; facility legislative representatives; and, of course, our dedicated member activists. While it is very important to be well represented in Washington, D.C., it is equally important that our activism reach members of Congress back in their home states and districts. Here is a rundown on how NATCA makes its members voices heard in the legislative and political arenas.
