How You Can Work With AmericanHort to Be a Voice for the Industry
At AmericanHort, we represent the horticulture industry within government and with legislators on important issues that affect our future success. Our advocacy team works diligently to improve labor, transportation, and the regulatory environment to make it easier to run your business.
But it’s important that we work together to ensure our industry’s continued growth and success for generations to come. We are proud to be a voice for our industry and encourage you to join us and speak up, too. Our collective voices are louder together.
We offer an easy tool available to our AmericanHort and Lighthouse members called Voter Voice. Voter Voice is a grassroots advocacy program that allows horticulture professionals to connect easily with their elected leaders on issues that affect their business. With one click of a button, you can send messages to elected officials on the important issues of the day. We send you an alert when the need to speak up arises, and you receive a sample message to send to lawmakers in Washington, DC. This is an easy way for you to share your stance on issues in a timely manner. While our Advocacy team is a constant presence on Capitol Hill, your efforts to contact your representatives on key issues makes our voice more compelling.
Want to share your voice, not just virtually, but also in person? Consider attending AmericanHort’s legislative conference — Impact Washington Summit — which takes place Sept 16-18 in Washington, DC. We are proud of the important progress our Advocacy and Research team is making on key issues. This gathering will educate industry business leaders on the latest legislative and regulatory issues impacting horticulture and will create the opportunity for you to meet with lawmakers face to face to share our position.
