The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) is reminding its membership that scheduling yard tours with members of Congress can be a vital grassroots tool.

Here's what the NLBMDA has to say about the subject:

As the calendar turns to the summer months, NLBMDA encourages members to reach out to their elected officials in Congress and invite them to visit your lumber yard. Summer is often the best time of year for face-to-face interaction with your Members of Congress and yard tours are a great way for lawmakers to meet you and your employees, hear about your company’s success and see first-hand how their votes impact your business.  

Grassroots advocacy by NLBMDA members is crucial to ensuring that the LBM industry’s priorities are reflected in legislation passed by Congress. NLBMDA staff are happy to support you in providing the tools you need to engage your elected officials through a yard tour. This includes assistance with scheduling a tour, background information and issue briefs on NLBMDA’s legislative priorities, and tips on hosting a successful yard tour.
