Grassroots Advocacy

Legislative Action Center

The Irrigation Association’s online Legislative Action Center makes it easy to become an advocate for your company and the entire irrigation industry. Lend your voice to the policy discussion with IA’s Legislative Action Center .

Become a Key Contact

Key contacts focus on developing close, personal relationships with elected officials at the state and federal levels. If you already have this type of relationship with your representatives, becoming a key contact is easy. If not, the IA has tools and resources to help you raise your visibility, benefiting you, your company and the entire industry.

Attend IA’s Washington, D.C., Fly-in

IA’s Washington, D.C., fly-in brings industry leaders together each year to promote efficient irrigation and directly advocate on our industry’s behalf with Congress and the Administration. The Legislative Conference provides a forum for IA members to speak with one voice about the topics that really matter to the irrigation industry, including the farm bill, WaterSense, water-use research and other issues.
