What is the TRAA Legislative Advocacy Network®  (TRAA LAN®)?

Developed in 2016, the TRAA Legislative Advocacy Network® (TRAA LAN®) is a unified group of representatives, from various regions across the country, with the goal of addressing legislation impacting towing industry. The TRAA LAN® can track and develop action plans regarding both state and national legislative initiatives. They also provide the ability to engage the towing industry in an organized grass-roots campaign to contact representatives and senators in their districts on urgent/pending legislative matters.

TRAA LAN® Purpose:

  • To formulate a network of dedicated, energetic towing professionals across the country willing to engage in legislative matters on a federal, state, or local level at the direction of the TRAA LAN® and TRAA.
  • To develop an email network of towing professionals across the country to be engaged when a legislative matter is urgent, and a grass roots effort is required.
  • This network of professionals, as outlined above, shall be known as the “Advocacy Collective of Towers™” (ACT)
  • To coordinate with industry manufacturers, industry partners and interdisciplinary partners to accomplish the above goals and to work cooperatively with the same.
  • To monitor legislative issues that may impact the towing industry and to inform the TRAA Cabinet of any potential legislative concerns.
  • To research and formulate an industry position on legislative matters and develop a plan to implement the position for approval

Our goal is to build a better future for the towing industry.
