Trade Wars: How Associations Can Fight for Their Members


Companies across the country are impacted by the ongoing U.S.-China trade war. Here are the building blocks for successfully navigating this business challenge:

1. Assess the impact. Have your members searched the relevant HTS codes in the tariff lists to determine if their products will be affected? What is the potential economic impact?

2. Develop your story. Who are the best advocates to tell this story in interviews, letters and op-eds? Who are your congressional champions?

3. Create a plan. Effective engagement involves both a legal response and multifaceted advocacy campaign that engages the relevant decision makers.
