Building corrosion champions in Congress

NACE International develops and executes legislative strategies centered on the issues that matter to our members. By working with policy makers, the association ensures the voices of corrosion industry professionals are heard, and legislators recognize the importance of corrosion control.

This annual event gives NACE members a chance to meet directly with members of Congress who determine funding for asset protection, and Federal Agency representatives who write regulations that lead to required training and certifications. To ensure policies result in the highest levels of public safety, policy makers must understand why support and proper training is imperative.

Professional certifications

You’ve dedicated your career to corrosion control and you’ve earned credentials that demonstrate your expertise and commitment. You represent the gold standard of the corrosion profession. Tell policy makers why your training, certification and expertise matter.

Drinking water safety

Unmitigated corrosion threatens our economy, environment, and public safety -- sometimes with catastrophic results. Whether the dangers are associated with aging infrastructure or, as in the case of Flint, the absence of a proactive corrosion management system, Congress must understand the importance of requiring the most qualified personnel in the fight against corrosion.

Join us on Capitol Hill to improve policies that govern the quality of drinking water. Without your input, more communities risk experiencing the same consequences seen in Flint.

Legislative Day is an opportunity for you to:

  • Meet with your representatives in Congress to tell them how critical high-quality, intensive training and certification is to asset safety
  • Get briefed on the status of policies and legislation affecting businesses and professionals in the corrosion industry
  • Attend the Corrosion Prevention Caucus annual reception with policy makers and regulators
  • Make a lasting impact on the future of the industry

Policy changes start with you

All NACE members are invited and encouraged to attend. Help gain Congressional support for the highest level of corrosion training and certification programs – critical to protecting communities, people, and more.
