Advocacy

ICA is shaping local, statewide, and national policy by elevating awareness, education and support of robust voice and data communications throughout rural Iowa.

ICA Legislative Committee
The Legislative Committee advises on matters before the Iowa Legislature and the Governor's Office and assists in grassroots development programs.  It also advocates changes in Iowa law that will advance communications services for the betterment of Iowa and our economy.

Federal Advocacy
The Alliance speaks as the voice of our members with federal policymakers.  In addition to corresponding through email and phone with congressional staff, we schedule periodic in-person advocacy trips to Washington DC to discuss communications policy with Iowa's Senators and Representatives.  The Alliance also conducts meetings with officials from important federal agencies including the FCC, USDA, FirstNet, and others.  The Alliance frequently files comments with federal agencies and participates in national coalitions supporting rural communications.

TelePAC
The TelePAC is our bipartisan fund that supports candidates and officeholders whose philosophies, actions, and positions are reflective of our industry.  For more information about TelePAC and how to contribute, visit our TelePAC page.
