As we all hope that 2021 will get somewhat back to “normal” we will continue to do our best to keep all of you up to date with the necessary information to help maintain your operations.
We are a small 501c(3) non-profit organization and rely solely on membership dues, sponsorship contributions, general donations and event revenue to sustain our general operations.
We also have significant expenses regarding the vitally important Legislative advocacy that we undertake to achieve our mission and foster participation and awareness regarding a litany of issues that impact or could impact our industry. Through lobbying and other forms of legislative advocacy, we provide vital expertise and perspectives to federal, state, and local government decision-makers resulting in improved laws and policies for our industry.
I am hopeful that you will consider pledging funds to this effort that will be used solely for this purpose. We have been fortunate to have various companies pledge in the past and without these additional member pledges our advocacy efforts would have been impacted. Without pledges in 2021 our efforts will be negatively impacted.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss our efforts on existing issues impacting our industry, so if you are inclined to pledge but would like additional insight please feel free to reach out to me via email.
Please review this page for brief synopsis of our accomplishments.
We are also actively involved in the ongoing rolling stock issue, probably one of the most important issues we have worked on in some time. Detailed information on this initiative is below.
