Advocacy Council

FEDA’s Advocacy Council is charged with guiding an advocacy agenda and action plan that support distributors, dealers and engage members. The Council meets four times a year. FEDA will also further its advocacy priorities by coordinating its planning and efforts with manufacturers and industry partners that share FEDA’s advocacy interests.
