The AIV Difference:  Engagement

Opportunities to Get Involved

AIV provides a full range of opportunities for involve­ment and advocacy on policy issues.  Mem­bers can ben­efit from our collective advocacy in the State House, be­fore the Administration and congressional delegation, and in the media, or get directly involved themselves through personal or written testimony, meetings, letters to the editor, and other activi­ties we support and facilitate.

Key to AIV's success is bringing members directly into contact with decision-makers.  AIV has consistent suc­cess in bringing members to­gether with legislators and administration officials through hearings and special meetings, including one-on-one meetings to discuss con­cerns of individual compa­nies.  Such direct contact is in­valuable in helping law­makers and agency leaders under­stand the needs and concerns of Vermont's employers.

AIV also maintains several volunteer task forces to de­velop policy positions and action campaigns on issues of importance to Vermont's industrial and business commu­nity.  Our task forces are made up of representatives of interested member companies, with frequent interaction with members of the state legislature, agencies, and ad­ministration officials. 

The number and focus of task forces evolve as develop­ments warrant.  AIV is working with task forces on:

  • Product and Materials Regulation

  • Energy Policy

  • Human Resources Policy

  • Environmental and Land Use Regulation

  • Tax Policy and Economic Development

  • Forest Policy

  • Transportation Policy
