• Call to Action - urge your elected officials to expand federal stimulus & aid packages

    We urge you to contact your elected officials and ask them to include significant emergency financial support for 501 (c)(6) associations within federal stimulus or aid packages considered in Congress. 501(c)(6) organizations such as local Chambers of Commerce, 501 (c)(4) organizations such as the Economic Development Commission, and other non-profit-status organization NOT designated as a 501(c)(3) will be INELIGIBLE for relief under the current proposal.

    Feel free to modify or edit the sample letter available for download HERE (language comes from the American Chamber of Commerce Executives and American Society of Association Executives). Please send a letter and/or call your legislators as business owners and directors of the organization. A list of your elected officials can be found at the bottom of this page.
