- Jun 19, 1998You are all correct. It (FCRA) is a big problem. NALI is going to be
involved by rapidly joining forces with virtually all the state investigator
associations to network and promote letter-writing to the appropriate
legislators. This one sneaked up on us pretty quickly, and we have to be more
on top of these knee-jerk responses by congress and legislatures. Jack Reed
has been appointed for his 5th term as Legislative chair. He and I are going
to work closely so that information can be rapidly disseminated to NALI's
Regional Directors and Assistant Regional Directors, and on to the various
Jack advises that legislators translate one letter into 500 votes. We can't
afford high-priced lobbyists, but if we could generate as few as 1000 letters
on an issue, these politicos would definitely sit up and notice. 5000 letters
would make them squirm, and 10,000 would make them dance.
It comes right down to how much effort each individual is willing to put
forth. If the profession simply sits back and bemoans its fate, we're in
trouble. If we get involved and encourage others to get similarly involved,
we can impact the problem.
How to start? Call your Regional Directors. Offer to serve as an Assistant
Regional Director (the pay is terrible, but the rewards have the potential of
being immense). Get involved in raising your own awareness, and that of your
friends and colleagues. Encourage everyone to DO, not just TALK.
