Formal AUTM Position
How and When Does AUTM Take a Formal Position?
AUTM educates and communicates with public officials - rather than lobbying according to the wishes of any segment of the overall AUTM membership - and seeks to keep members informed about issues and legislative activity so individuals may respond in a way appropriate to their particular circumstances. However, certain issues arise where the association is called to take a position. AUTM identifies when such action is appropriate by following certain guidelines for taking a formal position.
