A central part of TMA’s advocacy mission is state-level government relations, and in 2019 TMA was named the most influential advocacy organization on Capitol Hill. The TMA advocacy team works with state lawmakers and other organizations to achieve members’ legislative priorities as defined by the Legislative Committee, Board of Trustees and House of Delegates. Lobbyists review hundreds of bills each year to identify measures that promote or threaten good healthcare policies, and then organize member physicians and organizations to help carry TMA’s support or opposition.
