AACA region, letter to legislatures

2 posts in this topic

What is the policy of the AACA on writing to legislatures, protesting bills that adversely affect the hobby?

Can an AACA Region President write such a letter, and reference his standing in the club in his signature?

David,

Here is the text from the AACA Policy and Procedure Manual regarding the issue. I would think that it would be acceptable under the policy.

1.5.3 Legislative Policy

AACA legislative policy guidelines authorize participation of the AACA and its Regions and Chapters in national legislative affairs and assistance to members in state and local legislative affairs. Individual members shall determine in their own right appropriate legislative action in their respective areas.

The function of the Legislative Committee is to inform the membership in order that each individual member may take an informed position on national legislative matters, and to assist members to obtain information on regional and state issues.

The individual members are encouraged to initiate direct personal contact on a continuing basis with their respective legislators to advocate legislation affecting the Antique Automobile hobby.

Discretion must be exercised in legislative areas of club activities to be certain that the AACA Tax Exempt Status is not jeopardized and that "no Region, Chapter nor member shall participate in or assist in the promotion of a charitable or commercial enterprise in a manner implying sponsorship of the Antique Automobile Club of America".
