Resources & Advocacy Toolkit

As important legislation is being considered that impacts the industry, our goal is to inform and educate everyone who partakes in these conversations, as well as inspire professionals to take action in their local communities.

Our resources were specially curated from VRMA members and industry professionals who have provided their experience, expertise, and knowledge of how to engage.
