ACTION ALERTS

Action alerts are intended to quickly inform you on policy/regulatory issues that are relevant to you. Not only will they inform you, they provide you a vehicle through which you can be involved in the issue and have your voice heard by lawmakers.

This Incredible tool helps us do the target outreach, so you only receive action alerts relevant to you. No need to worry about your inbox filling with emails on issues that don’t affect you

Our communication and policy specialists will craft pre-populated letters and emails addressing the policy issue on behalf of MOGA members.  We encourage you to read through the email content before signing your name to it and sending it to your legislator (whose address will be provided).  That being said if you want to craft you own emails to legislators please be sure you are cautious that lawmakers don’t mistake your opinions for those of MOGA membership as a whole. If you have anything you wish to add something or have other ideas on the issue feel free to reach out to MOGA for more information!

Never underestimate the power of a large number of voices collectively speaking on an issue!

MICHIGAN'S OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY LEGISLATIVE Day Wed. February 15th!

2016 REPORT:

Advocates across all facets of the Michigan Oil and Gas Industry helped make the 2016 Legislative Education Day a Success! Teams of advocates had the opportunity to meet with over eighty legislative offices to share the Michigan Oil and Gas Industry Economic Impact Study and discuss Oil and Gas at both state and county levels. The day also included educational sessions that ran concurrently with legislative meetings, as well a well-attended cocktail reception where members had the opportunity to meet with even more legislators.

Many offices have reached out to MOGA expressing their appreciation for the opportunity to meet face to face with knowledgeable members of the industry and are looking forward to future Legislative Education Days.
