AAERT Government Relations Committee


The AAERT Government Relations Committee is seeking active volunteers.

Goal and Purpose.  The Government Relations Committee represents, promotes, and advocates for the interests of the Association with regard to policies, laws, regulations and other developments that may affect the Association and its membership.

The Committee monitors all federal and state legislation, regulatory, and judicial developments that may affect the Association, and advises the Association Board and the membership about these issues.

In response to identified issues or proposed legislation, the Committee will contact and inform policy makers at the national and state levels in an effort to educate and promote the interests of the Association.

• Required regular committee meetings (by telephone)
• Monitoring assigned government information websites

Involvement and Commitment. The Government Relations Committee is a working committee that requires a time commitment of 2 to 3 hours per month from each of its members.
