How We Work With Our Members

FRCA aligns “inside the Beltway” and “grassroots” efforts to provide:

A Strong Message to Congress

FRCA develops messaging that resonates with policy makers. These messages are delivered in many ways, including meetings with Members of Congress and their staff, testimony before key congressional committees, supportive documents, and other communications to the Hill.

Agency Interface

FRCA participates in pending matters before the Surface Transportation Board and engages other Federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Timely Analysis of Significant Events

FRCA provides timely updates to all of its members on events impacting the U.S. Congressional debate and Federal agency decision-making affecting its members.

Legislative Strategy Sessions

While Congress is in session, FRCA convenes regular legislative strategy sessions for its members so they can maximize the effectiveness of their lobbying activities.

Unlimited Access to FRCA Analysis and Documents

FRCA produces insightful, timely and accurate information regarding legislative efforts to address the concerns of rail-dependent shippers.

A Voice in Setting Policy

FRCA actively engages its members when deliberating the alliance’s positions, goals and strategies. All FRCA members have the ability to influence the activities that the alliance undertakes and the positions that FRCA advocates.
