About Communicating for America

Communicating for America, a national non-profit organization, adheres to a simple, commonsense idea: 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.

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

Our member adopted resolutions

For more than four decades, Communicating for America has fought for these resolutions. They are the pillars of what CA stands for, the issues around which CA members unite to create thunder and meaningful change.

Regardless of whether you are a producer, processor, wholesaler, retailer or most importantly, a consumer, your daily life is affected by American agriculture from the food you eat, to the clothes you wear, to the quality of life you live. CA will continue to promote an agriculture and consumer policy that encourages and promotes the well-being of family farmers, ranchers, small businesses and consumers in rural America.

CA will continue to work with all levels of government to provide incentives and programs for beginning farmers, ranchers, small businesses in rural America and self-employed individuals.

CA seeks cooperation between private organizations and all levels of government to promote community development that will enhance family farms, ranches and small businesses across America. CA supports new uses or renewable resources to fuel economic development.

CA seeks health care and health insurance programs that are administered and maintained by the private sector with legislation enacted only to ensure that all Americans are guaranteed a minimum standard of health care and insurance at a reasonable cost, regardless of health or age.

CA will work to ensure that agricultural land will be owned and agri-business operated by family farmers and ranchers.

CA will work to strengthen services vital to family farms, ranches, small businesses and the self-employed.

CA will make every effort to preserve and improve our education system, which is a vital asset to our country. Distance learning, apprenticeship training, and similar programs will improve the lives of our youth.

Expanding international understanding through international exchange programs, including apprenticeship training, will improve the lives of our youth in America and the world.

Knowing young people represent the future of America, CA supports activities that broaden opportunities for youth in all communities.

CA supports and endorses programs that will provide benefits to improve the quality of life for senior citizens.

CA supports improved guest worker programs and seeks to provide pathways for legal immigration to enhance the US agricultural sector, rural business and the overall strength of the US economy. CA further promotes international travel as a further pathway to international understanding.
