PICKERINGTON, OHIO -- The AMA`s Government Relations Department is gearing up to conduct another round of its popular "Ride Into Political Action" seminars.
The seminars, conducted by Terry Lee Cook, AMA state programs development specialist, are scheduled for March 8 in Great Falls, Mont., and March 29 in Charlotte, N.C. More seminars will be scheduled throughout the year in other parts of the country.
The seminar is an intense, day-long crash course in political action for motorcyclists and all-terrain vehicle riders. It helps participants learn how to work with other motorized recreation groups, maintain relations with elected and government officials, and how to affect legislation.
The seminar begins with basic instruction in the political party system and how a bill becomes law, then moves on to dealing with politicians, writing letters, influencing administrative bureaucracies, and getting your message to the news media.
For information on the Ride Into Political Action seminars, contact Cook at (614) 856-1900, ext. 1288, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
