Become an advocate for the irrigation industry

The Irrigation Association’s new advocate member category offers you the opportunity to stay on top of legislative and regulatory issues affecting the industry. IA advocates stay informed, take action and promote the benefits of efficient irrigation. This new community of members is available to any individual employed by an IA member company at no additional cost.

There are many benefits of becoming an IA advocate, including

  • access to the new IA quarterly e-newsletter, Insiders Update. This e-newsletter will feature exclusive reporting on legislative and regulatory developments that affect the irrigation industry and how you can get involved in the IA’s advocacy efforts.
  • exclusive invitations to participate in IrrigationPAC activities. IrrigationPAC is the IA’s nonpartisan political action committee that works to support the election of candidates who share our commitment to efficient irrigation and educate policymakers about its benefits.
  • reduced registration fee to the IA’s Washington, D.C., fly-in. For the past three years, we have partnered with the National Ground Water Association and the Water Quality Association to meet with congressional offices and share the irrigation industry’s message. Participants have the opportunity to speak directly with their representatives and experience Congress up close.
  • free subscriptions to Irrigation & Green Industry and/or Irrigation Today magazines. Whether you’re focused on agriculture or landscape irrigation, the IA has you covered with the latest news and in-depth reporting.
