VSFA Utilizes Capwiz to Link Members with Legislators
Capwiz is a grassroots advocacy tool that makes it easy for you to communicate with your U.S. and State Representatives and Senators. Through Capwiz, the National Volunteer Fire Council and the Vermont State Firefighters Association posts draft letters to elected officials and federal agencies that members can use to send to their elected officials simply by entering their contact information and clicking send. The NVFC and VSFA send out legislative alerts when important legislative issues arise, allowing our members to take quick action to voice your opinion.
VSFA Members can sign up for the action e-list by clicking here.
The VSFA's newsletter has gone electronic. After evaluating the increasing costs associated with publishing a paper version of the newsletter, and having difficulty in assembling enough content to justify the expense, the Executive Board decided to discontinue the paper publication and publish an electronic version.
