Government Action

Join MEA's Grassroots Network!

Help us pass legislation that strengthens the industry and stops regulation that is harmful to your business.

As a member of the Minnesota Electrical Association, you have a unique opportunity to ensure that the voice of electrical contractors is heard on legislative or regulatory issues that impact the electrical industry.

Our staff and lobbyists work hard to represent the majority viewpoint of our members from our annual legislative survey results.  Members receive regular updates during the legislative session.

Involvement

The work of the Association is a job for the entire membership.  When you join a committee, you are playing an important part in the Association - your contributions as a committee member can have considerable bearing on the success of the Minnesota Electrical Association. 

Committees derive their power and authority through the Board of Directors of the Association as determined by the by-laws.  All MEA committees are advisory to the Board and all programs and financial considerations have to be approved by the Board.
