LEGISLATIVE AFFAIRS

 


AMRA ADVOCACY

AMRA's Legislative Affairs program is comprised of a National Legislative Director, who works with Congress full time and a Legislative Committee consisting of a National Board Member as Chair and members chosen from the general membership who have experience or passionate interest in advocating for military retirees and their their families. The committee prepares Resolutions on military retiree issues for consideration by delegates at the National Convention.  Adopted Resolutions guide AMRA's legislative position to ensure that AMRA members have a voice in AMRA's official positions.

Senior leadership (National President, National First Vice President, National  Executive Director, Chair and Vice Chair of the Legislative Affairs Committee) visit Members of Congress annually in March to make AMRA's position known on a variety of military retiree issues.

AMERICANISM
 

PROUDLY WE WAVE CAMPAIGN

AMRA has prepared the attractive cards (right - click to view larger size) to help members nicely let their neighbors know when the flag they are flying is torn or soiled and should be replaced
(Click on image for larger view)

Members should first thank the neighbor for flying their flag but if they do not wish to personally present the card, it has been designed so that it can easily be mailed to a neighbor or local business. 

Members may request a supply of six (6) cards by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope to: Proudly We Wave, AMRA National Headquarters, 5436 Peru St., Suite 1, Plattsburgh, NY 12901.
