For more than a quarter of a century, OOIDA has been striving to meet the challenge of getting the word out quickly and effectively on important legislative issues affecting professional drivers.
With the aid of Land Line Magazine’s daily Web news on the Internet and the Association’s daily “Land Line Now” program on XM Satellite Radio, OOIDA has the capability to quickly relay to truckers information about important issues.
Now, it’s up to you to take action and have an impact on lawmakers about the issues they are discussing that affect you.
OOIDA’s Call to Action team is on the pulse of hot-button issues being discussed in Congress and in state legislatures throughout the country. If you are not already among the truckers plugged into daily legislative happenings, it is time you got connected.
You do not have to be a member of OOIDA to be on its Call to Action team. Land Line readers and others in the trucking industry are welcome to join.
It’s as simple as calling OOIDA’s offices and asking to be added to the Call to Action contact list. Team members with e-mail will receive the most current updates on critical legislative issues.
If you don’t have e-mail, don’t worry. You won’t be left out. Time permitting, a mailing will be sent out informing you about important issues. After receiving your alert, it is essential you call your elected official(s) – whose contact information will be provided – visit their office(s) for a face-to-face conversation or, when possible, attend a meeting where lawmakers are present for discussion.
You will be contacted only when an extremely important issue arises.
It’s up to you to join the team and help make a difference. Contact OOIDA’s Angel Burnell by phone at 1-800-444-5791, Ext. 1600, or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. You can also sign up at landlinemag.com. Simply click on the “Call to Action” button. It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s free. It will make a difference. LL
