Lobbying and Government Affairs
Through its active Government Affairs Committee and with the guidance of our legislative consultant, NYSMCA monitors state legislation and regulatory actions to assess the impact on messengers, couriers and delivery companies in New York State. When directed by the Board, NYSMCA participates actively in the legislative process to help ensure that the needs of our industry are taken into account. NYSMCA is equipped to tackle legislative issues on a proactive basis rather than a reactive basis.
NYSMCA members are alerted to situations that require their active participation in order to affect the outcome of legislation that impacts the messenger and courier industry. By participating in these activities, members have an opportunity to directly influence government decision-making.
Networking is essential for every professional business owner as it provides an opportunity to meet industry colleagues and discuss issues of mutual concern. Networking is the basis for alliance building and also affords our members the ability to collaborate and discuss business arrangements that may be mutually beneficial. It is definitely one of the most valuable reasons for joining the NYSMCA.
Through periodic email updates and website news postings, members are never more than a click away from important announcements, relevant news and key industry information.
The NYSMCA website provides information on every aspect of the Association. From meeting notices to legislative updates, as well as links to online resources and industry news, the website is an increasingly valued resource. NYSMCA maintains a directory of courier and messenger company member profiles online which gives individuals and businesses access to service provider information throughout the state of New York.
