Grassroots advocacy is the practice of educating and influencing public officials in order to promote and achieve legislative priorities that support the specialty. Grassroots efforts are not the work of professional lobbyists or staff, but of AAOMS members.

The OMS Action Network serves as a central hub for AAOMS members to learn more about and participate in all AAOMS grassroots initiatives.

For more details on the activities listed to the right, please view the OMS Action Network Grassroots Toolkit.

Also, please sign up to be a part of the network so that staff can facilitate your participation.

Finally, fill out the Key Legislative Contact form if you have a key relationship with a particular legislator, or would like to develop one. Doing so will make you a valuable "go-to" advocacy contact.

For questions about grassroots advocacy or anything mentioned on this page, please contact the AAOMS Governmental Affairs Department at 800-822-6637 or advocacy@aaoms.org.
