Volunteer Opportunities 

MBA Committees
Committee volunteers are the backbone of the MBA's legislative, educational and member service efforts. Contact us for more information on participating on an MBA Committee. 

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.  Please contact Patricia Herndon This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
