LEGISLATIVE GRASSROOTS MEETINGS
Legislative grassroots meetings are a fundamental component of the SDTA in that they’re used to educate elected officials — specifically members of the South Dakota Legislature — about issues that are important to the trucking industry.
These meetings help build relationships between association members and their elected officials. In crafting these personal relationships, we hope that when an issue arises, these elected officials will remember our member’s comments before taking any action.
SDTA member participation is essential for continued success at the South Dakota Legislature. The SDTA wants elected officials to directly hear from members, as your active involvement goes a long way in ensuring that issues facing the trucking industry remain at the forefront of elected officials.
If you can’t attend a meeting in your area, we recommend that you send someone from your business. Legislative grassroots meetings are our primary way of advocating on behalf of the SDTA membership and have proven to be very successful.
