Who can participate in the North Texas Advocacy Coalition?
Participation in the Coalition is open to members of the North Texas Commission which consists of businesses, higher education institutions, municipalities and Chambers of Commerce in the 13 county North Texas region.
If I’m a member of the North Texas Commission am I automatically part of the North Texas Advocacy Coalition?
Because this is an advocacy initiative, joining the Coalition is an opt-in choice. You may opt-in/join here. Additionally, some organizations may want to participate in the Coalition, but not wish to be publicly identified. That is perfectly fine, and can be indicated upon opt-in.
Can I sign up for my entire organization if I personally have had no previous contact with the North Texas Commission?
The opt-in process for organizations wishing to participate in the North Texas Advocacy Coalition should be completed by individuals who are aware of the guidelines and policies of their organization with regards to advocacy initiatives, in addition but not limited to the public identification of that organization as part of the Coalition. With that in mind, opt-in should be completed by an individual who is familiar with the North Texas Commission and their interactions with that particular organization.
