Team 88 members not only reach out to legislators, but they encourage employees and members of their community to also build relationships with local legislators. Everyone can advocate for the industry by staying informed on all the latest issues and bills being discussed by local representatives. OTA is excited to see how Team 88’s impact can grow throughout 2019 and beyond!
