Building Corrosion Champions in Congress

NACE International develops and executes legislative strategies centered on the policy issues that matter to our members. By working with policy makers, the association ensures the voice of corrosion industry professionals is heard and legislators are informed of the importance of corrosion control.

NACE International staff has been instrumental in raising awareness on Capitol Hill through:

  • • Coordination of legislative fly ins
  • • Submission of Congressional Testimony
  • • Letter writing campaigns
  • • Development of the Corrosion Prevention Caucus
  • • Successfully including corrosion prevention provisions in federal law and regulations
Make Your Voice Heard

Whether it’s an email, a phone call, or an in-person meeting, policy makers want to hear from you, their constituent, about the daily challenges you, your family, and your businesses face. The only way to ensure policy makers address your concerns is to make your voice heard.
