Raise Your Voice


NCRA provides open and direct communication with its members through its Advocacy and Technical Practice Directors (ATPDs). These board members serve as the liaisons between members and NCRA on matters of advocacy and technical practice. There are four categories: external, internal, legislative, and regulatory. External is a policy or a procedure of a standard-setting organization or other agency (not NCRA); internal is an NCRA policy or procedure; legislative describes issues that are a state or federal initiative or action tied to congress or state legislature; and regulatory describes issues that are a state or federal law tied to regulatory enforcement by a state or federal agency.



Bring an issue forward by completing a Member Advocacy Questionnaire Form or contact your ATPD.
