About Communicating for America
Communicating for America advocates for “the advancement of people in agriculture and small business, and the promotion of their general health, welfare and education.”
Our mission is to:
- Promote health, well-being and the advancement of all self-employed Americans and small business owners by utilizing our acquired experience in serving rural Americans
- Give members the right and opportunity to set policies and goals
- Deliver valued member benefits at the best price and of the highest quality
We adhere to a simple, commonsense idea: that rural people should enjoy all the benefits and representation that their urban counterparts do. That is why, year after year, our highest priorities are the issues facing our members and their families.
