NMPA Advocacy

If you are an NMPA member and would like to make a recommendation that the association take specific advocacy actions, please sign in and navigate to the 'members only' area to access the Advocacy Request Form and let your colleagues on the executive committee know your recommendations for specific advocacy action.  

Please remember that members of the executive committee or board may not know about the issue around which you are requesting advocacy action.  To assist them in responding to your request, here are a few things you will be asked when you fill out the form:

1. - Level of action: is the issue one that is internal to NMPA?  Is it a state-level issue?  A federal issue?  Or something else?

2. - Specific action(s) requested:  Tell your colleagues specifically what you'd like them to do or consider.  Write a letter?  If so, please provide a sample.  Tell them how you will help implement your requested advocacy action.

3. - Background or comment:  Help your colleagues understand this issue by giving us a brief history of this issue or suggestion.

4. - Support NMPA mission: How does this advocacy recommendation support NMPA's mission statement?

5. - Known support or opposition: Are there key individuals or groups supporting or opposing this action or legislation?

6. - Deadline for action: Let your colleagues know if this request is time-sensitive or has specific deadlines.

Note: Priority in requesting NMPA advocacy is an important benefit of membership, and as such the 
Advocacy Request Form is located in the "members only" section of the website.

Should non-members have inquiries on advocacy, they may work with an active NMPA member to submit a request.
