What is Lobbying?

Lobbying provides education and an opportunity to build relationships with local branches of power in the house, senate, and governors office. 

Purpose of Legislative Efforts

As a member of ArizOTA your best interests are being advocated for at the Legislature. Our legislative committee, in collaboration with our lobbyist (Triadvocates), is monitoring each and every bill introduced and, when necessary, engages with decisionmakers to ensure that OTs have a voice at the Capitol.
