One reason AAA was created a century ago was to advocate for better and safer roadways, and we make no secret of our advocacy work on safety and mobility today. In fact, the majority of the work we do is based on feedback from Members.
While Members may not join AAA primarily for advocacy, they do expect the organization to protect their interests. We routinely inform our Members of our activities through Member publications and events. The media is also updated on AAA’s activities and regularly reports on our work.
The AAA federation has a single government affairs office located in Washington D.C. which represents all clubs on a national level. This office serves as the federal representative on national legislation, such as the Clean Air Act. Each individual club has representatives at the state level, covering local issues.
The California State Automobile Association, which is the second-largest AAA affiliate, covers Northern California, Nevada and Utah. We have a government affairs staff working with the legislatures in those three states.
