Letter From the President
Over the past several years, three factors have come to light where IA needs to take a lead role:
- Increase our industry’s visibility with elected officials and political candidates at the federal level.
- Educate policymakers about the economic and environmental benefits of efficient irrigation.
- Represent industry stakeholders’ interests and take a leadership role in the water efficiency and management debate.
Acting as the “political arm” of the Irrigation Association, IrrigationPAC is now the industry’s political voice through supporting candidates for federal office who understand the importance and benefits of efficient irrigation. As leaders of the irrigation industry, it is time that we lead by example and support this important and much-needed element in our continued effort to promote efficient irrigation.
