Your Voice on Capitol Hill
Since 1954, NTCA has served as the voice of rural telecommunications providers. The association understands your business and represents your interests on issues and policies that will affect you and your community. NTCA is your partner in communicating with Congress.
Your Interests at the FCC
The NTCA policy team researches issues, tracks trends, and analyzes the financial, economic and competitive impact of regulatory proposals. Members and staff collaborate to develop policy positions and to execute the association’s regulatory agenda by submitting filings and by engaging with policymakers at the FCC and across Washington, D.C.
NTCA Rural Broadband PAC
The NTCA Rural Broadband PAC is the voluntary, nonpartisan political action committee of NTCA. The NTCA Rural Broadband PAC accepts voluntary contributions from authorized individuals within the association’s member companies, then distributes these funds to support federal candidates who have an appreciation of the legislative and regulatory issues that are unique to our members.
Legislative & Policy Conference
Each year, hundreds of NTCA members travel to Washington, D.C., for the association’s Legislative & Policy Conference. Attendees cultivate relationships and share their stories with federal policymakers and members of Congress to give them a better understanding of rural telecom issues.
