Advocacy with an eye on the details.

Before acts are passed and regulation enforced, we pay close attention to how legislation could impact our members’ business – and make their voices heard. NAFEM’s advocacy efforts present our members’ point-of-view to lawmakers, government agencies and other stakeholders, playing an active role in shaping key initiatives.

NAFEM is actively involved in the following issues on behalf of its members. If you have questions, or need help with issues not listed, please let us know. Visit this site for updates.
