Advocacy at the Local Level
Team 88 is a grassroots legislative initiative of the Ohio Trucking Association that connects you to your local legislators and helps you tell the story of your business and the trucking industry.
Your involvement is critical in helping educate lawmakers on the issues affecting you, your business, and your community. This program consists of trucking industry professionals from all 88 Ohio counties and is a vital component to OTA’s advocacy efforts at the state and federal level.
Since its implementation in 2017, Team 88 has changed how OTA members politically advocate for the trucking industry. Through webinar sessions and resources, Team 88 members have learned the importance of connecting with elected officials and gained the tools needed to build relationships with their legislators. Ohio legislators acknowledge the group for its continued determination to seek political support of the trucking industry.
When a “hot topic” arises and we need grassroots support, we call on Team 88 to call or email their legislator. Additionally, quarterly webinars will be held to update members on key legislative initiatives and ways to get involved.
