A Look at the ATA Grassroots Program

The American Trucking Association is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry and is the voice of the truck drivers, trucking companies, truck driving schools, and anyone else involved in the industry. One of the ways in which the ATA protects the interest of the trucking industry is through its grassroots program. ATA’s network of industry members, including truck driving schools like HDS Truck Driving Institute, work together to influence legislative decisions on the state and federal level to promote a pro-trucking environment. After you earn graduate from CDL school in Tucson and become a driver, your involvement in the ATA grassroots program will ensure a powerful force for the benefit of truckers everywhere.

Grassroots Program Action Center

The ATA’s Grassroots Program Action Center is a robust software platform that allows members to communicate directly with Members of Congress on the issues that are most important to the trucking industry as a whole. Members use the Grassroots Program Action Center to track important bills and quickly connect with state and federal officials overseeing legislation that can impact the industry.

Call on Washington

An integral arm of the Grassroots Network, ATA’s Call on Washington program allows members to meet directly with congress members, key congressional staff, federal regulators, fellow industry leaders, and ATA staff to discuss legislation and regulatory actions affecting the trucking industry. No other program provides such direct interaction with so many significant government and industry contacts, which is part of the reasons why the ATA’s grassroots program has been so successful over the years at protecting the interests of the trucking industry.
