Welcome to the Equipment Manufacturing Industry's Political Advocacy Toolkit – The AEM Action Center

The AEM Global Public Policy team works to ensure our industry's concerns are heard and taken into account when decisions that impact us are being made, but they can't do it alone. As former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill, famously said: "All politics is local."

A successful government relations strategy requires involvement from local citizens – real people just like you who can demonstrate to lawmakers how issues affect them, their jobs, their families and communities. This is why the Action Center is here to help AEM members get and stay involved in the political process. Through the Action Center you can write your lawmakers, stay on top of election news, see how often your representatives voted with our industry's interests in mind, register to vote, learn about AEM's Political Action Committee, or enjoy the lighter side of politics.

Every day in Washington DC, Congress is considering issues that have significant impact on our industry – infrastructure investment, taxes, energy policy, healthcare reform, labor relations – and we need your help to be an effective voice in these debates. To view issue information click here.

Please share this site with others in our industry, because it is important for everyone to take an active role in the political process. If we're not Investing Together in Better Government no one is going to do it for us. View more information on getting your company involved.
