Grassroots involvement is a very powerful force in politics. Consistent grassroots efforts are vital when it comes to persuading legislators how to vote on a specific issue. Getting to know your legislator makes your contact with them even more important. As a constituent, your concerns are important to your congressman and state representatives.
The MBA’s Contact Banker program works with the state legislators on Michigan issues. Our state efforts concentrate on building personal relationships between bankers and their state legislators.
