Political Advocacy

Our goal is to protect your best interests. As a WIBA member, you will have a voice in our political advocacy process. By way of member polling, a registered lobbyist and volunteer committees, WIBA has become a recognized resource, taking a proactive stand on city, county, state and federal legislation that impacts the operation and profitability of independent businesses.

If you would like to get involved, contact our Governmental Affairs Committee. This committee monitors issues, legislation, regulations and ordinances on the federal, state and local levels that have an impact on independent businesses.

They recommend positions or actions they feel WIBA should take, or not take, as an organization. The committee also alerts members about important issues so that they can contact their representative, senator, or local official. Any recommended action needs executive committee approval to be presented to the WIBA Board of Directors.
